IAPCO EDGE is a highly interactive 3 day-seminar designed for meetings and events professionals. Taught by global leaders in the meetings industry, attendees will develop new skills and have an opportunity to self-reflect and learn strategies to improve work/life balance.

Attending an IAPCO Edge Seminar is a unique experience. Through teamwork and social activities, participants connect and build friendships with professionals from PCOs, convention bureaus, and convention centres from around the world.

IAPCO’s vision for the EDGE Seminar is to:

  • Facilitate the gathering of “all” PCOs, CVBs, Convention Centres, and Associations in an inspirational setting
  • Inspire participants to learn and lead within our industry
  • Create a platform for personalised learning and professional development for everyone who attends
  • Encourage an environment for peer-to-peer learning and knowledge-share inside and outside the meeting room
  • Build relationships and friendships between individuals to continue and enhance further learning post-seminar
  • Create pride and accountability within the profession

The IHF is proud to be represented by its CEO, Ronald Lavater.
