Arinex and The Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society (IMC) were the celebrated winners of the IAPCO Driving Excellence Collaboration Award announced at the IBTM Leaders Summit on Monday, who also support the Award.
The award entry emphasised the importance of a collaborative approach between the PCO, client and all the sponsors and stakeholders that had excellent results.
Simon Ringer, Chair of IMC19 said “This meeting is a highly technical meeting and the technical performance is up there with anything we care to mention. The industry has shown up in droves. We’ve had record breaking [sponsorship and exhibition] numbers and of course the collaboration has been deeply impactful.”
“We are delighted to present the Collaboration award to Arinex and The Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society. Their application highlighted one of the many benefits of working with a PCO – the 360 approach to solving challenges using solid expertise and going above and beyond congress delivery” said Mathias Posch, President of IAPCO
