How the global meetings industry united to face the crisis

The International Association for Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) brought together 14 National PCO Associations for the first time in its 52-year history. The Strategic Global Task Force of National PCO Associations connected to share Coronavirus-related data and case studies. The primary focus of the strategic task force was to use the combined expertise to create and distribute safe best practice guidelines for Professional Congress Organisers (PCOs) worldwide. 

After almost two years, the Task Force presented its achievements and discussed future perspectives at the annual convention of the Hellenic industry association HAPCO.
