Alain Pittet, Executive Director of Ega worldwide congresses & events, has been re-elected to the Council of IAPCO (The International Association of Professional Congress Organisers). IAPCO has the vision to achieve global accreditation and acknowledgment of truly Professional Congress Organisers. Today the accredited 133 company members across 40 countries represent the best professional organisers in the world which must participate in an annual quality assessment including statutory returns, event quality check lists, client references and on-going education. “I am very honoured to have been re-elected as Council member of IAPCO at the General Assembly in my hometown Basel and I will support the association in managing its valuable partners.” says Alain Pittet.“Furthermore, I would like to promote IAPCO’s evolvement as an important network for the smaller PCO’s which do not have their own network of offices around the world. I am very much in favour of the collaborative approach to interesting projects and to exchange ideas and experiences.” he adds.
Alain Pittet joined Ega in July 2018 as Executive Director for the International Business Development after 9 years with another PCO and 16 years in the Exhibition and Live Marketing Industry. Alain has been involved in the bidding for the IAPCO General Assemblies of 2019 in Basel and 2021 in Rome just announced some days ago.
