ABPCO to host in-house PCO event

The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) will host its first event for 25 in-house PCOs on 25 September 2012.

Taking place at the Wellcome Trust, London, the conference will focus on networking and getting the most out of LinkedIn with renowned speaker and LinkedIn expert Bert Verdonk.

The event is sponsored by Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB).
 
ABPCO Vice-Chair Jennifer Jenkins, who will chair the event, said: "This 25th anniversary year is very special to ABPCO as it gives us an opportunity to celebrate our long-standing pedigree in the conferencing industry and encourages us to reflect on best practice.  

"Most importantly, our members benefit tremendously from peer-to-peer networking, sharing experiences and ideas to help each other deliver the best possible conferences and meetings.  

"We are delighted that the Wellcome Trust has agreed to host this first ever ABPCO event dedicated to in-house PCOs and are looking forward to uncovering some great tips on maximising LinkedIn from Bert Verdonk."
 
Aileen Crawford, Head of Conventions at Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB), said: "This event is a great opportunity to get together with colleagues and partners from across the industry to share ideas and best practice. The LinkedIn session will provide an ideal forum through which attendees can engage and connect, both on and offline."
