IAPCO Accepts Eight Companies in 2012

IAPCO has accepted eight companies into membership in 2012, bringing the total membership to 119 from 42 countries, representing all the continents. The eight new members had to undergo the normal rigorous application process including site inspections of one of their congresses and intensive inspections of their offices and procedures. Not all applicants were accepted, with two applications being rejected at the final stages, and numerous applications not able to achieve the initial criteria.

The eight new members come from nearly all continents:

  • Asia: GIS Group from Taiwan, a new country membership for IAPCO
  • Latin America: Turismo&Convenciones and Business Congress Mexico, both from Mexico, bringing the representation within that country to three; and Acqua Consultoria from Brazil, IAPCO's second company member from that country
  • Middle East: ICOM for Organization, Marketing & Research, the second member from Egypt; and Meeting Minds Experts, the first company member from UAE
  • Europe: CAP Partner from Denmark and ERA Ltd from Greece
