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.
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.
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. Chairmen's lunch and Excellence Awards
This is our annual business get together to reflect on the past year and look at our strategy for going forward. It is an ideal opportunity for members to network. If you are an in-house PCO and member of ABPCO and would like to arrange a visit please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will arrange it for you.
The awards ceremony is an interactive event, with presentations from each of the nominated finalists with peer judging on the day. It really supports our values #excellence #learning #belonging and our desire to enable human enrichment through face to face gatherings.
