A PCO provides a more extensive service than a Meeting Planner, acting as a partner rather than a supplier to their clients. The term PCO is recognised throughout the world. IAPCO is the universally accepted benchmark for quality and is the global branding of excellence for the meetings industry. Today IAPCO membership offers a unique quality assurance, since entry into membership of IAPCO is by meeting strict criteria and by continuous quality assessment, including annual Company Reports, Quality Self-Assessment and attendance at IAPCO’s Quality Seminar. The high quality standards are secured by means of continuing education including the recently launched EDGE Seminar Programme - Experts in Dynamic Global Education. EDGE Seminars are based on the renowned Wolfsberg Seminar but are now held worldwide, three times a year. Florence, Italy, in January; Suzhou, China, in April; and Guadalajara, Mexico in August are the next scheduled seminars for 2018. IAPCO publishes various guidelines from initial request for tenders, how to select a PCO, through to implementation of various aspects of event management. IAPCO's Driving Excellence Award Programme includes the Collaboration Award, supported by IBTM Events, the winner of which will be announced at the IBTM Meetings Leadership Summit. The Annual Survey of IAPCO’s members’ activities, now in its 11th year, showed that in 2016, IAPCO members organised 9860 meetings, totalling some 3.91 million participants and representing an economic impact in the region of 5.38 billion euros to national economies.
