Jean Evans Appointed as New AIPCO Chairperson

The Association of Irish Professional Conference Organisers (AIPCO) has announced that Jean Evans has been appointed Chairperson of the Association. Evans works as Regional Director - Association Relations at the MCI Group and will hold the position of Chair throughout 2012 and 2013.

Evans replaces Nicola McGrane, Managing Director of Conference Partners, as Chairperson.

Evans said: "I’m honoured to be appointed Chairperson by my colleagues. Nicola is one of the leading lights in our industry and I’ve very big shoes to fill following the tremendous progress she helped manage against the background of one of the toughest economic periods in this country’s history. In this country we sometimes underestimate our ability to deliver world-class meetings and events, despite all the evidence to the contrary. We are one of the best, and everyone here at AIPCO is working towards making us the best."
