In addition to all of this, membership of the association grew by 5% from 2022 and interest in new membership applications for 2024 is far exceeding expectations.

The IAPCO Annual Member Survey compiles data from the IAPCO membership to gain valuable insight into its community over the previous year and to get an outlook for the coming years. This data enables IAPCO to understand its members’ impact on the industry through their performance and focus on future activities.

When assessed, together with all other indicators, the impact that IAPCO members continue to bring to both our industry and cities within which their client events are delivered is extremely positive, attractive and proof of the value of business events around the globe.”
