Need a PCO? Let Us Do That For You

9thJun 10

When we talk about PCO’s we’re not referring to the Parliamentary Counsel Office, The Professional Cartoonists Organisation or the Privy Council Office – in fact what we mean by PCO is Professional Conference Organiser – in a nutshell US!

Some companies recruit individuals into conference departments especially to work on conferences whilst other blue chips might hold 1 – 5 conferences a year and cannot justify any permanent staff yet still require the skills and expertise of individuals like us to help them manage such events.

So how can we assist with the successful organisation of your next event?

Venue Selectionvenue sourcing booking and liaison, reservations and management of delegate accommodation.

Programme Planning – to include any speaker selection and briefing

Administration – provision of an administrative secretariat, delegate registration, delegate logistics and travel arrangements

Event marketing – Design of promotional materials PR and media co-ordination.

AV requirements – we can offer advice and co-ordination on set design and all production related topics. Can also provide multilingual interpretation and translation services

So if you are the person responsible for pulling together the next International Congress, Annual Conference or Association Meeting then it might well be worth getting in touch, we can deal with all or parts of the points outlined above and really do know what we’re talking about! We are only a phone call away and more to the point we could save you a whole lot of time and money…
