An overview of ABPCO events

Our events are all listed below.   The ethos of our events calendar is to raise standards of professionalism in association conference and event organisation.

We also signpost relevant education and peer group knowledge sharing programmes and  work with our partner Universities to source and disseminate original research and content to members.

Familiarisation

Familiarisation

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.

Roundtable

Roundtable

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. The meetings are closed and Chatham House Rules apply.
