We are synonymous with quality assurance
We are historical members of IAPCO, the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers, Once accepted into the Association, an IAPCO Accredited PCO has to maintain their membership by participating in an annual quality assessment including statutory returns, event quality check lists, client references and on-going education. As a result of the above, an IAPCO PCO offers a unique quality assurance recognised by congress clients and suppliers all over the world. Cristina Aru, EGA partner and member of its Board is the IAPCO ambassador for Southern Europe and Alain Pittet, Executive Director, was IAPCO council member from 2016 to 2018.
We love our country
Our President Emma Aru is the founder of Progetto Itaca Roma, an association that provides help, support and rehabilitation services to subjects with mental disorders. Progetto Itaca Roma organises numerous solidarity and prevention initiatives to restore a good quality of life to patients and their families. Moreover, we are very keen on the Italian cultural heritage: we are members of FAI (Italian National Trust) and we participate and support their initiatives. In 2011, EGA partners Emma and Cristina Aru founded the Gaeta FAI Group.
We value university research
Many years ago, we chose to join CUEIM, University Consortium of Industrial and Management Economics, with 24 Italian universities, 1 Spanish university, 1 European research centre, institutional representatives, banks and companies. Thanks to the relation network created through CUEIM and to the skills acquired in over 50 years, we can provide a very high-level support for territorial marketing projects, B2B meetings and training.
We aim at eco-sustainable excellence
We obtained the ISO 9001 certification for our management system in 2002. In 2010 we obtained the ISO 14001 certification from DNV-GL and decided to design only events that respect the environment. Since 2016 we have also become compliant with the ISO 20121 standard that supports our organisation in designing and managing sustainable events. As a result, we received the certification from RINA. For us quality goes beyond certifications: our ambition is to transform each event in a unique experience with our client at the centre.
