IASLC Award Based on Business Partnership

At the recent IMEX America show in Las Vegas, the Vice-President of IAPCO, Michel Neijmann, introduced the concept of IAPCO's quality brand. "The members of our association have many things in common, one of which is their commitment to providing high-quality services. An important part of achieving high quality standards is to recognise those people and organisations who enable us to improve ourselves."

Mathias Posch, MD of International Conference Services Vancouver, nominator of the Award, introduced: ""The IAPCO Council unanimously voted to give this year's Award to the "International Association of the Study of Lung Cancer - IASLC."

The IASLC organises a number of meetings each year, many of them with a global focus. Their prime conference is the World Conference on Lung Cancer which is currently held biennially and travels around the world. It attracts upwards of 7000 delegates from over 90 countries and is regarded as the premier conference in the lung cancer field.

"The World Conference on Lung Cancer is a model for great success that can come from collaborating with a PCO as a true partner in an environment of confidence and trust. Since the Association decided to work with a PCO on an ongoing basis in 2003 the conference has more than trebled in size and enjoys outstanding recognition."

"We are very honoured to be presented with this Award," said John Wetherington, CFO and COO of IASLC, who received the Award. "Our association deals with one of the worst diseases of our time and education is the key to better care. As the congress grows and is able to reach more people, more people get proper treatment and we would not be able to provide that and grow without a professional partner like ICS at our side."
