Glossary of Commonly used words or phrases in the Meeting and Events Industry

Business Events Terminologies

The international congress and meetings industry has grown in recent years in both volume and complexity. The terminology used in the industry has expanded consequently, especially in such areas as information technology, social media etc., to cover an ever-increasing responsibility of all involved in the industry – from client to PCO, from supplier to industry, from convention bureaux to congress centres.

The latest edition of the 16-language and 1200-word dictionary is an encyclopaedia of communication terminologies for the meetings industry.

Intended to be a practical tool, the 1200 words are translated into 16 languages: Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Danish, English, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Ukrainian, presenting an overview of terminology with definitions in English as a further guide. It covers every aspect of the services, techniques, organisation, and equipment relating to international events.
