Fiona has organised many successful conferences since starting in the industry in 2003. Specialising in association conferences, firstly at Meeting Makers for 15 years and then with In Conference for two years, Fiona is now working as a Senior Project Manager with Abbey Conference & Events UK.
Abbey Conference & Events are one of the UK and Ireland’s leading Professional Conference Organisers. As part of Abbey Tours Ltd (est. 1978), we took care of our first Conference in 1988 and then opened our first UK office in Edinburgh in 2008, followed by our London office in 2015. The company is privately owned by Jane Magnier, Marina Finn & Patricia McColgan.
As an award winning PCO, Abbey understands that managing conferences is a major undertaking which requires specific expertise. Our wide-ranging experience as a Professional Conference Organiser (PCO) is probably best demonstrated by the many and varied National & International Conferences on which we have worked. Over the past 29 years, we have had the pleasure of working with organisations from a wide range of disciplines including financial, scientific, medical, research, academic, industry and pharmaceutical as well as a number of Government Departments.
Our role and responsibility is to provide you with a high quality service, efficient strategic planning, financial management and excellent communication processes to help you to deliver a successful and highly memorable conference. We aim to achieve this through gaining a full understanding of your needs and priorities and by working in close partnership with the local organising committee for the entire life of the conference.
