The agency was already supporting the society with the management of its fourth ISCoS and ASIA Joint Scientific Meeting in Montreal this May. Zibrant created a dedicated association services division last year to provide the sector with an ‘extended offering’.

Prof JJ Wyndaele, ISCoS president, said: "To be able face the overall changes in the running of scientific organisations, there was need to update the way the society worked. One item was to create a close and valuable cooperation with a professional congress organiser. With the good experience with Zibrant during the one year contract, we decided to extend our partnership."  

Caroline MacKenzie, Zibrant’s director of association services, said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the society, its executive and its members to provide a more strategic level of cooperation, not only in support of the annual scientific meeting but also in how the meeting can develop to ensure it continues to align and act as a conduit and driver for the wider objectives of the Society. We will be able to do this more effectively within the framework of a longer-term contract."
