Kenes launches Global Pound Conference series on mediation

PCO partners with International Mediation Institute for series of events starting in March next year

Professional conference organiser (PCO) Kenes Group has partnered with the International Mediation Institute (IMI) to launch the Global Pound Conference (GPC) series.

Kenes will supervise and coordinate the series of international IMI-hosted events, entitled Global Pound Conference (GPC) Series 2016-17. 

“The meetings will provoke debate on existing tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what dispute resolution users actually need and want,” said Michael McIlwrath, GPC executive committee chair. “We are truly excited to be on board with Kenes for these milestone events.

“The GPC is primed and ready to be promoted and appreciated on a global scale, usher in new delegates and new supporters. It is Kenes’ longstanding reputation and experience in initiating and growing meetings such as ours that we are confident the entire series will yield overwhelming success,” he added. 

More than 26 countries worldwide have already committed to holding a GPC event, with more being added. The launch will take place at a two-day conference in Singapore on 17-18 March 2016, with the last event scheduled for London in July 2017.

Dan Rivlin, Kenes CEO, said: “We could not be prouder of our distinguished new client, IMI and the opportunity to support a vital global meeting series such as the GPC and how these events play a pivotal role in all of our futures. 

“The GPC Series is in keeping with Kenes’ commitment to helping shape the community and the world in which we live by gathering together industry experts, researchers and key stakeholders. This is indeed an opportunity for Kenes to substantially increase the GPC brand, recognize its unique offering and to promote and share it around the globe.”
