Exclusive to ABPCO members, these familiarisation trips take in venues and destinations that have a new space, technology or service to offer to professional conference organisers.

The trips offer members a “sneak preview” of all that is new from venues and emerging destinations ahead of any formal launch and, of course, an opportunity to meet and network with other ABPCO members at the same time. Read MORE or BOOK Event

These are peer to peer forums for conference organisers to come together to share best practice.  They give an opportunity to share recent experiences and, importantly, to formulate a collective view of the common challenges that lie ahead.  They are generally 2 hour meetings across lunch-time.  The meetings are ‘closed’ and Chatham House Rules apply. Read MORE or BOOK Event
