Mathias Posch, president of International Conference Services, was elected IAPCO president at the association’s largest-ever annual general assembly in Tokyo recently.

He takes over from outgoing president Jan Tonkin and will serve for two years.

In his first message as president, he said: “Meeting quality - is more than just a tagline, it is a responsibility - to our clients, to our partners, to each other as well as the industry at large.

“Quality is more than just a check list, it is an on-going commitment to furthering our abilities and to sharing our best practices with each other - it goes way beyond our membership and it gives us the opportunity to move our industry forward and, in fact, to lead it.”

Mathias said his mission was to 'keep thinking big, keep innovating and keep strengthening our standing as PCOs' and to widen the association’s reach in Asia and Latin America.

Along with a new president, the council welcomed three new members: Barbara Calderwood, MCI UK; Monica Freire, AIM Group International and Sarah Markey-Hamm, ICMS Pty Ltd.

Said Posch: “I am very proud to be leading an international team with such broad and diverse experience. They are a great reflection of our association and our industry and each member contributes a unique view and strengths to the council.”
