Kenes International, a global medical
congress organiser and association management company, has boosted its
UK presence by merging its activities
there with London-based PCO, Confab Consulting.
It is hoped that combining their knowledge and
connections will increase both parties’ share in the international and national
medical association market.
With over 44 years’ experience, Kenes has
been a long-term PCO for 45 European and International clients in key medical
areas. The company has offices in Geneva,
Berlin, Tel Aviv, Singapore and Santiago de Chile.
Confab Consulting was established in 2003 by
Michael Foreman, Dion Bassett and Claire Joffe all experienced in the
international PCO business. The three directors will remain significant
shareholders in the new merged company with Michael Foreman continuing as MD.
Kenes Group MD Dan Rivlin and co-MD Avi Rosner, will join the Confab
Foreman says: “Joining the Kenes Group is the
catalyst that will enhance our efforts of the past six years to build a firm
business platform and grow our already impressive client portfolio.”
As a Kenes Group Company going forward,
Confab will provide added value services to associations in the medical field.
It will assist national UK-based medical societies to increase their
brand awareness, organise meetings, and promote the UK as a
prime location for international meetings. Confab’s activities will also
complement Kenes International’s focus on its global core PCO and AMC client
