IAPCO represents the global branding for professional congress organisers and meeting planners. IAPCO membership is universally recognised as a sign of excellence. Strict membership criteria apply and members must comply with IAPCO’s Quality Standards on an ongoing basis.

Quality standards include:

  • Completion of Statutory Information on an annual basis
  • Completion of Congress Check Lists on an annual basis
  • Completion of Quality Self-Assessments on an annual basis
  • Attendance at IAPCO Quality Seminar on a triennial basis

The work of the Quality Committee, chaired by a member of Council, is to monitor the Quality Standards and to ensure compliance.
