Leading UK conference trade associates announced formal working links. ABPCO has contracted the British Association of Conference Destinations (BACD) to run its secretariat and work with it to develop its membership and member services.
“We are still quite a young organisation” commented Howard Evans, Chairman of ABPCO, “but if ABPCO is to flourish we need to build alliances with like minded organisations. BACD offers the resources and expertise to help us develop in a planned and systematic way. We already have many of the leading event management companies and PCO’s in membership but there is great scope now to strengthen and expand the association for the benefit of both our members and for the clients we serve”
