Jan Tonkin, president of IAPCO, was delighted to present the 2015 Innovation Award to Yoshihito Takahashi from Congress Corporation, Japan at the glittering IMEX Gala evening, last week.
The 9th IAPCO Annual Survey 2015 produced no surprises. With the economic turnaround, and the recession hopefully confined to history, IAPCO members were busy in 2015, organising an average of 113 events per member.
Jan Tonkin, managing director of Auckland-based The Conference Company, will today take up the presidency of the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers. Jan was elected at the Association’s annual General Assembly in Cape Town in February, and takes over from outgoing President Michel Neijmann for a two-year term.
Cementing its position as an up-and-coming C&I destination, Japan has won the bid to host the 49th Annual Meeting and General Assembly of the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers in 2018.
IAPCO is delighted to welcome their most recent new member, and a new country, into membership, bringing the total members to 120 from now 41 countries.
