A new country member for IAPCO

IAPCO is welcoming six new members this year; and in doing so it also adds another country to their list of localities from where its members hail. Joelle Shammas, MD of Infomed International for Events, now represents Lebanon within IAPCO, bringing the total number of countries represented within the membership to 37.

Two additional members from South Korea, EZpmp Inc. and Intercom Convention Services, Inc., both from Seoul, bring the number of Korean members to four; Atout Organisation Science joins the other five company members from France whilst Congress Care and Interium Tourism are added to the members from The Netherlands and Turkey respectively.

K2 Conference and Event Management Co (Turkey) and Keynote PCO (Ireland) become full company members, the individual member category having been phased out, to ensure yet greater quality control.

Whilst companies continue to apply for membership, [27 applications in the past year] achieving the quality standards imposed by IAPCO is, if anything, harder to attain than ever before, with just six making the grade during 2010. Stricter measures, controls and criteria are being enforced by the Quality Committee of IAPCO, thus ensuring that clients are confident in the quality standards of IAPCO members. IAPCO has 107 members (+5 Intergovernmental Offices) from 37 countries all driven by quality standards.
