AIPC MEMBERSHIP MEANS QUALITY
Why does AIPC membership means represent a higher quality product? There are a lot of reasons - but here are 10 to think about:
AIPC members have the best professional development resources in the industry
The AIPC Academy offers the only comprehensive, international and centre-specific educational experience in the industry, with intensive programs that incorporate input from both industry experts and key client groups in order to make the connection between current issues and corresponding best service practices.
AIPC members deliver extensive sustainability credentials and options
Virtually all AIPC member centres have comprehensive sustainability policies and programs in place to make your event more environmentally friendly while offering a variety of program options to enable you to readily address your own organizational CSR objectives in an efficient, cost-effective way.
AIPC centres are committed to Excellence in Centre Management
All AIPC members are committed to Excellence in Convention Centre Management – it’s the they're members! And now, the AIPC Quality Standards program - the only centre-specific management process system in the industry - is delivering an audited certification to document centre achievements.
AIPC members can access the latest and best industry research
AIPC carries out ongoing centre-related research, working with other industry organizations to access the facts and analysis that enable them to better understand client issues and help you to develop innovative solutions.
AIPC recognizes and rewards quality
For over ten years, AIPC has maintained the AIPC Apex Award in Recognition of the Highest Client Rating Received by a Convention Centre, a program that not only recognizes top-rated centres around the world but provides member participants with an exhaustive assessment of strengths and weaknesses they can act on for further improvement.
The AIPC network creates access to global knowledge, expertise and innovation
With more than 175 international centres and over 900 management professionals in 57 countries around the globe, AIPC members exchange a world of knowledge, experience and creativity in forums designed to share this wealth for the benefit of both operators and clients.
AIPC members document value and performance
AIPC members understand the importance of providing hard performance measures in support of their claims, whether this is in service areas or the documentation of economic benefits, and have access to a variety of tools to assist them in achieving this.
AIPC members listen to their clients
Client feedback is the most important vehicle for measuring performance. That’s why customer feedback and improvement loops are an integral part of the AIPC Quality Standards program and a force that drives long term planning for member centres.
AIPC members work with their communities to ensure a secure and welcoming environment
Great partnerships make for a great destination experience – and that’s why our members invest in community relations activities that underline the importance of the industry to the local community and connect effectively with local strategic services. The result: the kind of welcome and security your delegates want and deserve throughout their event.
AIPC members recognize and support the industry value proposition
As industry professionals, one thing we all share is the need for greater awareness of the value of what we do for our participants, from association professionals to corporate managers. AIPC member centres make this kind of communication a priority – and that helps create a better future for all of us!
