Feedback and Testimonial from Cinzia Petruzzello, General Secretariat AIPPI in Regards to AIPPI Forum and ExCo 2011

KW Conferences organized and managed the AIPPI Forum and ExCo from October 13-19, 2011 in Hyderabad. We are happy that Cinzia Petruzzello, General Secretariat AIPPI,  rated the conference experience as a 9 out of 10—but as she says, only because if she rated us 10 out of 10, then there would be no room for improvement!

She also stated that KW Conferences provided excellent service in terms of transportation, social events, efficiency, responsiveness, and that she would definitely recommend KW Conferences to her friends and colleagues.

Have a Great Diwali!

Wishing you a very happy Diwali full of light and joy – Team KWC

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Are You Green? Team KWC has taken little steps into becoming a greener organization!

Steps we have taken to becoming environmentally friendly:
1.       Reusing paper for printing non-official documents
2.       Handing over signs to the vendors after an event
      Vendors then hand over the signs to paper scrap collectors who sell these to recycling plants or other industries
3.       Turning power down during lunch break
      Might not seem like it will make a big difference, but when you total the hours, it comes up to almost 25 hours a month!
4.       Employing temporary staff
This also helps fuel the local economy!
5.       Using proper coffee mugs instead of disposable ones!
       Did you know that a single office can produce a landfill full of disposable coffee mugs in a year?
6.       Utilizing energy efficient light bulbs and other energy efficient electrical appliances when possible.

We hope to take further steps to reduce emissions and promote environmental sustainability in the years to come. Team KWC urges you to do the same and remember that change occurs one step at a time. Every single step counts!

The ICCA Congress is the annual meeting of the International Congress and Convention Association, an organization of the main specialists in handling, transporting and accommodating international events. This year’s Congress will receive more than 1000 delegates from 70 countries across the world.

The Chariman of the organizing committee has stated that this year’s Congress will focus on change and innovation as well as with environmental sustainability. In fact, Congress attendees will have access to free public transportation with their ICCA badges.

 “ICCA is synonymous with innovation. It is important to look beyond the rim of your teacup and that’s exactly what the Congress programme will do for usAndrĂ© Kaldenhoff (Chairman of the Host Committee)

Interesting Architecture in Leipzig, Germany
Team KWC is quite impressed with the ICCA committee’s association with award winning Scottish Conservation Charity, Trees for Life, which works toward native forest, ecosystem and habitat restoration.

An excerpt from the ICCA website:
To date we have planted over 800,000 trees across our target area and assisted in the regeneration of more than 4,5000 hectares of land.
Trees for Life not only seeks to counteract and reverse the centuries of deforestation which have led to the almost complete loss of Scotland's native woodlands, but also to be pioneers in the newly emerging field of ecological restoration.”

Repeat and Referral Business in the Conferencing World

As with most other service industry related businesses, the Professional Conference Organizer business involves building a loyal customer base through repeat and referral business. You must have heard the saying ‘one satisfied client review can generate an unlimited customer base;’ this holds doubly true for the conference management business.

Panel Discussion during FICPI, India Symposium 2009
A conference is not a uni-dimensional product or service such as, say, toothpaste or a restaurant (I realize that a restaurant is also multidimensional in terms of service, ambiance, and cuisine, but it typically only sells a single quantifiable product: food). The multi-dimensional aspects of a conference, such as dinners, discussion panels, breakout meetings, coffee and snack breaks throughout the day, transportation requirements and so on, demand an extremely meticulous eye for detail and consistent deliveries on behalf of the organizers. We want to be very sure that every tiny aspect of the conference goes well for our clients and delegates.

Captivating Traditional Dance, YPO Royal Rajasthan
As a testament to our quality of service and dedication to creating a perfect conference experience, we have built a large client base through return and referral business. Some of our return and referral based clients include the Asian Patent Attorneys Association [APAA], Young Presidents Organization [YPO], Metal Junction, International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property [AIPPI], National Seed Association of India, Indian Tea Association, Federation Internationale Des Conseils en Propreite Industrielle [FICPI], and many more.

Team KWC Does Not Believe in Boring Conferences!

Team KWC firmly holds the belief that there is no such thing as a boring conference! With India’s vast array of scenic, heritage, arts and crafts, architecture, nature and wildlife, culinary, spiritual and therapeutic attractions, there are a multitude of social events that can be planned for small and large scale conferences. At KWC, we make it our mission to meticulously plan and organize such events so that conference attendees will find their experience to be extraordinary.

Here are five ways we can make your conference experience in India unforgettably fun:

1.       Elephant Polo
YPO, Jaipur--Elephant Polo

Who says polo should only be played on horseback? Our guests at YPO will tell you that playing the popular colonial sport on elephant back was extremely amusing.

2.       Enjoy India’s Numerous Cultures by Watching a Classical Indian Dance
Classical Dance during the 71st Congress of FIP, 2011

We’ve organized numerous classical Indian dances for our conferences over the years and our guests love them! Classical dances in India usually tell a story of thousand year old legends and cultural practices.

3.       Dance the Night Away in a Party
IIW, 2011 Delegates Rocking to the Beat

          After watching a scintillating classical dance sequence, you can bust some of your own dance moves on the dance floor!

4.       Have a Big, Fat, Indian Style Wedding Ceremony
YPO, Royal Rajasthan

Weddings in India are celebrated with a melange of bright colours, lights, music, and dancing! Whether you’re participating in a mock wedding as a guest or a couple to be married, you will get the chance of experiencing a [very loud] magical moment that will surely be memorable for years to come.

5.       Tours, Tours, and More Tours
The Taj Mahal

Whether it’s pre- or post- conference tours, spouse/partner tours, city/day tours, we’ve organized a multitude of tours for our conference guests over the years. All of India is open to you, whether you want to explore the riveting backwaters of Kerala, visit the luxurious castles of Jaipur, or of course, marvel at the amazing Mughal architecture of the Taj Mahal.
