INDIA - Another New Country for IAPCO

India has become the latest country to be represented in the ranks of IAPCO members, bringing the total to an impressive 41 countries. And with the addition of new members KW Conferences Pvt based in Gurgaon, India and Convention Linkage, Inc, based in Chiyoda-ku, Japan, IAPCO now boasts 116 quality-driven members.

As with all member applications, entry criteria is strict, with site inspection appraisal visits taking place in both cases.   Michel Neijmann, Quality Committee and IAPCO Council, undertook the audit of World Sleep 2011, organised by Convention Linkage, in Kyoto, at which 2596 delegates attended from 37 countries.

Roslyn McLeod, IAPCO Council, took the trip to India to review the AIPPI (International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property) ExCo and Forum 2011 in Hyderabad at which 662 delegates from 69 countries participated.  “All those to whom I spoke were highly complimentary about the various staff with whom they dealt with at KW Conferences”, commented Roslyn, “I did not encounter one criticism.  Their performance was seamless despite the fact that they had to move social events due to predicted rain following on storms and floods.  They will make a good member of IAPCO and bring credit within India due to their high standing”.

But it was not good news for everyone …. Two other applications for membership have been rejected this year, and seven remain pending.  “IAPCO continues to be extremely diligent about membership applications to continue striving for Quality” says Philippe Fournier, IAPCO President.

Conference organizers globally are working towards efficiency, cost-cutting and benefits by using advanced software solutions. The focus is to provide a memorable experience which provides high ROI and VFM (value for money).
Modern technology has made possible smooth hassle-free activities that are intrinsic to almost every conference, using software and systems designed to handle these essential activities. These solutions bring down costs which can benefit the participants through lower fees and more freebies. The challenge is that every conference has certain unique requirements which can only be handled through customized software. This is where in-house technical expertise is advantageous as the software will be customized to fit the specifics of the event.

KW Conferences is a 'full service' conference organizer. Along with the entire gamut of services for large international conferences, KWC offers certain stand-alone services as 'Service Bureau' products which can be used by associations, institutes, corporations and others. KWC, with its in-house technical expertise, has developed these online services for organizations which need specific technical assistance while being able to handle regular services themselves. The services offered include:
  • Website Development and Management
  • Online Registration
  • Internet Payment Gateway
  • Online Abstract Management
  • Onsite Registration
  • Speaker Prep Services
