The high quality standards are secured by means of continuing education and interaction with other professionals.

EDGE

The new educational offering “EDGE from IAPCO” is available. No longer will the Annual Seminar be limited to Switzerland, the dynamic educational seminar will now be offered worldwide with three seminars per year in different regions. EDGE will provide education at three  different levels, giving people that edge they need in a global competitive environment. Focused on professional congress organisation these seminars will replace the traditional Wolfsberg Seminar and will fill the existing void in international MICE education for the PCO and the Meeting Planner. Providing a destination focus, Destination Partners in IAPCO Education will be able to participate in the programme, showcasing their destination and bringing an international location perspective to EDGE.

Cutting EDGE seminars will now be delivered worldwide, affordable and accessible. Are you standing on the EDGE of the future?
