The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) reports a strong start to 2016 after a surge in corporate members.
Venues such as 1 Wimpole Street, Conference Cambridge, Alexony Ltd, Harrogate International Centre and imago have all become corporate members of the association over the past few months. The association expects the trend to continue throughout the early part of 2016.
Emma Boynton, head of sales and marketing at imago, said: “The benefits of being a corporate member are clear to see. We will not only benefit from the fantastic reputation and integrity that ABPCO holds within the industry but it also gives us opportunities to learn and grow as a venue too.”
Caroline Windsor, joint-chair of ABPCO, said: “2015 was a great year for us in terms of growth in numbers of PCO members, so to now see a real rise in our corporate members has helped to start the New Year with a bang.”
ABPCO current has 36 corporate members and a total membership of 142.
