IAPCO, the International Association for Professional Congress Organisers, has designed an education programme (EDGE: Experts in Dynamic Global Education) to provide continuing education and to raise standards in the meetings industry. An IAPCO EDGE Advanced Seminar in particular aims at bringing expertise in meeting organisation to new heights: an interactive, engaging seminar delivered by industry experts focussed on high-quality education, knowledge share and challenged thinking with valuable take-aways.

This edition will feature three of the worldwide senior experts within the global Meetings Industry: Nicola McGrane, CEO Conference Partners International will be joined by Patrizia Semprebene Buongiorno, Vice President AIM Group International and Sherrif Karamat, CEO at PCMA, Professional Convention Management Association.

They will cover many fundamental topics while maximising learning potential: they will debate with each other actual and future trends, tips on how to enhance team performance or how to create bespoke messaging to engage your community. Moreover, they will discuss meeting design, legacy, finance management, business development and much more…

All of this is crowned by interactive working group sessions to really embed the learnings from each of the sessions.

There will be an amazing social programme that brings together the modern funky side of Prague along with the more traditional one, the perfect backdrop for networking with your peers.
