South Africa Becomes IAPCO’s 40th Member Country

South Africa has become the latest country to be represented in the ranks of IAPCO members, bringing the total to 40 countries. And with the addition of new members African Agenda, based in Cape Town, South Africa, and Gyro Conference, based in Lillehammer, Norway, the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers now has 114 members.

“Some people may think this is slow progress, but IAPCO is about quality and ensuring that members who are accepted meet the criteria set,” said Jan Tonkin, Chair of the IAPCO Membership Committee, and Managing Director of The Conference Company, New Zealand. “I am delighted that both African Agenda and Gyro Conference have met that quality standard, and we are proud to welcome them to our family.”
