Core Professional Congress Organiser - Core PCO

Building the full potential for your association and future events.

Request service

As a core professional congress organiser (Core PCO) we have a modular approach in providing congress management services, regardless of event size, location or the structure of your organisation. If looking to continually improve the attractiveness, production effectiveness, finance and overall organisation of your event, allow C-IN to provide these improvements as a long term integrated partner. We have over 5 years of experience in providing full Core PCO services to a wide range of partners and continue to build our portfolio.

C-IN’s Core PCO Services:

Further to the regular services provided within congress management, having a long-term partner to organise your recurring event provides your association with a range of additional benefits.

KEY BENEFITS OF LONG-TERM CO-OPERATION:

  • A Core PCO promotes the most cost effective way to organise your event through an ongoing improved knowledge of the congress, operations and association procedures. Further to this due to this existing knowledge and competence the time invested in tendering for a PCO, briefing congress requirements and preparation for each conference is significantly shorter.
  • Further increasing efficiency and reducing stress through an increased focused on core content of the event and long- term goals of the association whilst your partner deals with the main logistical management of your event.
  • Long-term partnership facilitates a combined focus towards future goals and objectives of the association through increasing the incentive for exceptional performance of the PCO. Through continuous evaluation and experience the congress is improved whilst eradicating the cost of transferring knowledge and experience between different PCO’s and the association.
  • A Core PCO allows you to fully benefit from the lessons learnt from previous congresses and will ensure that knowledge and experience is transferred from one event to another in the most comprehensive way. A Core PCO partner is also a valuable consultant in doing analysis and comparisons for the feasibility of future destinations.
  • Long- term partnership ensures the continuity of brand conformity across different congress websites, logos and marketing materials. This in turn helps create an increasingly recognisable and unified sustainable brand for your congress.
  • In an industry largely based on people, a long-term partnership allows for improved working relationships which promote mutual understanding and knowledge of individual requirements built over time and each event. Further to this a Core PCO benefits from ongoing relations with main sponsors and exhibitors both of which are vital to the success of the congress.
 

WHY CHOOSE C-IN AS YOUR CHOSEN CORE PCO:

Dear Pavel,

First of all many thanks for You and for Your colleagues for this very well organized, very disciplined Congress. I think it has a great value and also could be example for many other event.

As we agreed, I am asking You to put us (me) on the mailing list of Your Congress Calendar 2009 when it is available. Usually UpTodate makes its decision about the participation at international congress very early, so I would appreciate even the first drafts of Your event's list.

Have a great week and I wish some quiet minute for You after this great work!

Kind regards, Otmar

Dear Jitka,

I hope you've had a chance to put your feet up after the recent EDTNA congress.

This is just a short note to congratulate you on a highly successful congress and to thank you again for your kind hospitality.

I know that at the Industry meeting everyone was very much focussed on the next congress already and were therefore discussing possible changes and improvements so we perhaps didn't spend much time on what not to change. I think the exceedingly positive comments we've exchanged with colleagues and nurses during the course of the congress is a direct reflection on your involvement and the time you've personally invested; as well as your team's hard work and dedication. So I hope that your and the C-IN team's commitment and clear enthusiasm will remain unchanged in spite of the tremendous workload obviously involved with the organisation of such events. Your support this year was greatly appreciated and certainly ensured that our presence in Prague was smooth running.

It has been a real pleasure working with you all and I am certainly looking forward to Hamburg next year!

Thank you again.

Kind regards,
Sandra

LETTER OF REFERENCE

To whom it may concern:
I have been a local host of three major medical international conferences recently organised in Prague by C-IN company. All three events achieved very high rating from the participants. People from C-IN are hard working, experienced, communicative and creative. C-IN also succeeded in the management of the international society for childhood leukemia I-BFM-SG where I am a member of the Executive Board. I can fully recommend the C-IN company for the role of association and conference management.

01. - 05. červen 2014

Dear Tomas,

It has become quite apparent that everyone on your team associated with our Congress in Prague is working extremely hard and for very long hours.

I want to express my sincere thanks for all the hard work of the C-In team and the amazing commitment to ensuring that Congress planning is carried out promptly and efficiently

I know that your staff have been working regularly until midnight, and at week-ends and during bank holidays (as evidenced by the emails at all hours!). Malcolm is also most appreciative of this support.

I am sure that the marvelous effort and willingness to 'go the extra mile' will contribute towards a fantastic Congress. In Dan's case it was more than the extra mile; carrying the Congress flag through the streets of Prague while running the City marathon was a perfect example of how committed you all are.

Well done Dan! And well done to the C-In team-ICM is very fortunate to have you all.

Yours sincerely,

Frances Ganges

To whom it my concern

On behalf of the EES Board, I would like to express our satisfaction with the services we have received and experienced since 2009 in collaboration with C-IN. These services concern the organisation of EES biennial conference in 2010, 2012 and 2014, and the provision of association management services since end 2009.
Our co-operation with C-IN started in 2009 with the preparation and organisation of the 9th EES Biennial Conference held in 2010, Prague, Czech Republic. Following this, C-IN was again contracted (after competitive bidding) for organisation of the 2012 Conference in Helsinki and (on direct hire basis) for the Conference in Dublin this year. C-IN has furthermore provided association management services to the EES since December 2009 (preparing and minuting meetings, website update, membership administration, etc. A complete list of tasks is available upon request).

Over the years we have experienced a good level of quality of the provided services regardless of the location where our conference was held. C-IN has proven to be a dedicated customer-focused partner with great experience on how to organise an event to the highest standards. Further to our collaboration, C-IN has also become a valuable partner and advisor in view of future destination selection and management.

As for the association management services, after an initial period of quickly ramping up the learning curve (EES was in this area among C-IN´s), we are highly satisfied with the professionalism and high standard of association management services provided. Over the years C-IN as gained in autonomy in this which was very much relieved the burden on the (all volunteer) EES Board members. Moreover, C-IN staff are kind, friendly and understanding, which is much appreciated.

As a very satisfied partner of C-IN, we recommend C-IN both as an association and conference management service provider. If considering C-IN as a long term core PCO I am sure you will have similar positive experience and benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience C-IN have working with many association around Europe.

Yours sincerely,
Bastiaan de Laat
