ABPCO celebrates 25 years with inaugural in-house PCO event

As part of its silver jubilee anniversary celebrations, ABPCO is hosting its first event dedicated to in-house PCOs on September 25th, hosted by the Wellcome Trust, London

Focusing on networking and ‘How to make the most of LinkedIn’, the event brings together a total of 25 of ABPCO’s own in-house PCO members with other Association buyers from across the capital to network and discuss best practice with world renowned speaker and LinkedIn expert Bert Verdonk, sponsored by Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB).

ABPCO Vice-Chair Jennifer Jenkins, who will chair the event, commented: “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 marks a milestone occasion for ABPCO and we are delighted to be partnering with them for it. It’s a great opportunity to get together with colleagues and partners from across the industry to share ideas and best practice. Moreover, the LinkedIn session will provide an ideal forum through which attendees can engage and connect, both on and offline. At Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, we’re very much looking forward to being a part of this digital conversation.”
