Each year the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers – ABPCO undertakes a survey to understand how it can work more closely with its members and deliver on their needs. For each completed survey ABPCO donates £5 to leading industry charity Meeting Needs. The results of the survey, strategy and plans for the future will be announced at the ABPCO AGM, in Belfast on June 21st. Responses to the 2019 engagement survey are up 38% compared to 2018.
Joint chair of ABPCO, Jo Powel (on the image above), commented: “ABPCO is continuing to see exceptional growth as new members join from both the supply and demand side of the industry. A key factor of that success has been our willingness to listen to our members and make changes that suit their needs and expectations. In particular, this is demonstrated by the fact that 69% of the ABPCO membership has responded to this year’s engagement survey. Donating these funds to Meeting Needs is part of our ongoing commitment to the charity, which is such a force for good and positive change around the world.”
Meeting Needs Chair, Jason Wilcock, concludes: “Over the course of the last twelve months Meeting Needs has supported a wide variety of causes around the world and in the UK including; Just a Drop, Seashell Trust, Tools for Self Reliance and Clowns Without Borders. We rely on the support of industry organisations to raise much-needed funds and so we are very grateful for the ongoing support from ABPCO and its members.”
