The European Federation of the Associations
of Professional Congress Organisers (EFAPCO) has become the 12th
conference industry organisation to join the global membership of the Joint
Meetings Industry Council (JMIC).

EFAPCO president Nicolas Le Brun says: “In just six
years we appear to have made great progress in forging strong links with the EU,
and we hope that will help to reinforce JMIC’s drive to gain greater recognition
for the meetings and events industry worldwide, as well as across Europe. We look forward to making an active contribution
to the work undertaken by JMIC.”

Along with its existing industry networking, awards and
advocacy programming, JMIC is now advancing the exchange of information and
programming among various industry sectors. It aims to create an effective
collective voice to address key issues, advancing industry value measurement and
staging an industry summit to address key issues and increase industry profile.

JMIC President Leigh Harry said: “We want to ensure that
JMIC has the ability to represent the interests of the full spectrum of
international industry organisations, and the addition of EFAPCO to our ranks is
a further strengthening in that regard. It is important that we can, as an
industry, present a strong and united front when the need arises, and our sense
is that time is now.”
