MCI’s Sumaira Isaacs elected to IAPCO council

MCI is pleased to announce that Sumaira Isaacs, Chief Operating Officer, MCI India, Middle East & Africa, has been elected to the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) council.

IAPCO is a leading association in the international meetings and events industry and represents more than 114 professional organisers, meeting planners and managers of international and national congresses, conventions and special events. The association is committed to raising standards of service among its members and other sectors of the meetings industry by means of continuing education and interaction with other professionals.

A true meetings industry veteran with over 20 years’ experience, Sumaira brings immense international knowledge and local insights into the IMEA market (India, Middle East and Africa) to the IAPCO board.

Driving the strategic growth of MCI in IMEA since 2006, Sumaira has been instrumental in building relations with local opinion leaders and is considered a key contributor to the development of the meetings industry in the region. Under her leadership, significant investments in staff and client services have been made and MCI has built up a strong network of corporate and association clients and an impressive record of successful events.

“IAPCO is a great platform to give back to an industry that's given me so much,” said Sumaira. “It is the premier industry standard for quality and knowledge for its members, and I am proud to be associated with it.”

MCI was previously represented on the IAPCO Council by Philippe Fournier, President, MCI France. Philippe recently stepped down after 8 successful years on the council, including 2 years as IAPACO President from 2010- 2012.

As part of the IAPCO council, Sumaira will help to guide IAPCO as the leading authority on professional congress organisation worldwide, ensure that the association’s quality standards are maintained and effectively serve the association’s members.
