Past presidents and special industry invited speakers were in attendance to ensure that the recognition was given to the IAPCO family that has made the Association so strong in its current entity.
President Mathias Posch says “We were delighted at the outcome of a very vibrant and engaged IAPCO 50th Anniversary Meeting. The feedback from the participants was excellent, and it felt like a real positive start to the next 50 years of IAPCO. It is a very exciting time to be President with membership applications at an all-time high, record breaking annual meeting attendance, successful sold-out international EDGE Seminars and a plethora of IAPCO initiatives ranging from the Outreach Programme to the Ticky the Turtle CSR Campaign to rid the meetings industry of single-use plastic. We are proud of the engagement of the IAPCO family.”
The Annual Meeting programme, focussed on three different daily themes – Innovate or Die, Critical Thinking and Positive Leadership – showcasing some insightful and inspiring keynotes, together with innovation snapshots, espresso exchange (a member knowledge share), fun energisers topped off with a wow-factor social programme, the highlight being the glittering Golden Gala held at Les Trois Rois.
