INDIA - Another New Country for IAPCO



India has become the latest country to be represented in the ranks of IAPCO members, bringing the total to an impressive 41 countries. And with the addition of new members KW Conferences Pvt based in Gurgaon, India and Convention Linkage, Inc, based in Chiyoda-ku, Japan, IAPCO now boasts 116 quality-driven members.

As with all member applications, entry criteria is strict, with site inspection appraisal visits taking place in both cases.   Michel Neijmann, Quality Committee and IAPCO Council, undertook the audit of World Sleep 2011, organised by Convention Linkage, in Kyoto, at which 2596 delegates attended from 37 countries.

Roslyn McLeod, IAPCO Council, took the trip to India to review the AIPPI (International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property) ExCo and Forum 2011 in Hyderabad at which 662 delegates from 69 countries participated.  “All those to whom I spoke were highly complimentary about the various staff with whom they dealt with at KW Conferences”, commented Roslyn, “I did not encounter one criticism.  Their performance was seamless despite the fact that they had to move social events due to predicted rain following on storms and floods.  They will make a good member of IAPCO and bring credit within India due to their high standing”.

But it was not good news for everyone …. Two other applications for membership have been rejected this year, and seven remain pending.  “IAPCO continues to be extremely diligent about membership applications to continue striving for Quality” says Philippe Fournier, IAPCO President.

KW Conferences is Fully Equipped in the IT Department!


On site photo ID printing facilities during the 13th Indian National Conference of Paediatric Critical Care

Conference organizers globally are working towards efficiency, cost-cutting and benefits by using advanced software solutions. The focus is to provide a memorable experience which provides high ROI and VFM (value for money).
Modern technology has made possible smooth hassle-free activities that are intrinsic to almost every conference, using software and systems designed to handle these essential activities. These solutions bring down costs which can benefit the participants through lower fees and more freebies. The challenge is that every conference has certain unique requirements which can only be handled through customized software. This is where in-house technical expertise is advantageous as the software will be customized to fit the specifics of the event.

KW Conferences is a 'full service' conference organizer. Along with the entire gamut of services for large international conferences, KWC offers certain stand-alone services as 'Service Bureau' products which can be used by associations, institutes, corporations and others. KWC, with its in-house technical expertise, has developed these online services for organizations which need specific technical assistance while being able to handle regular services themselves. The services offered include:
  • Website Development and Management
  • Online Registration
  • Internet Payment Gateway
  • Online Abstract Management
  • Onsite Registration
  • Speaker Prep Services

Have a Great Diwali!


Wishing you a very happy Diwali full of light and joy – Team KWC


Thursday, October 20, 2011

Are You Green? Team KWC has taken little steps into becoming a greener organization!


Steps we have taken to becoming environmentally friendly:
1.       Reusing paper for printing non-official documents
2.       Handing over signs to the vendors after an event
      Vendors then hand over the signs to paper scrap collectors who sell these to recycling plants or other industries
3.       Turning power down during lunch break
      Might not seem like it will make a big difference, but when you total the hours, it comes up to almost 25 hours a month!
4.       Employing temporary staff
This also helps fuel the local economy!
5.       Using proper coffee mugs instead of disposable ones!
       Did you know that a single office can produce a landfill full of disposable coffee mugs in a year?
6.       Utilizing energy efficient light bulbs and other energy efficient electrical appliances when possible.

We hope to take further steps to reduce emissions and promote environmental sustainability in the years to come. Team KWC urges you to do the same and remember that change occurs one step at a time. Every single step counts!

Our directors, Ms. Rashmi Hazarika and Mr. Arjun Narne will be representing team KWC in the 50th ICCA Congress and Exhibition in Leipzig Germany from October 22nd to October 26th.

Ms. Rashmi Hazarika and Mr. Arjun Narne During an Employee Appreciation  Presentation
The ICCA Congress is the annual meeting of the International Congress and Convention Association, an organization of the main specialists in handling, transporting and accommodating international events. This year’s Congress will receive more than 1000 delegates from 70 countries across the world.

The Chariman of the organizing committee has stated that this year’s Congress will focus on change and innovation as well as with environmental sustainability. In fact, Congress attendees will have access to free public transportation with their ICCA badges.

 “ICCA is synonymous with innovation. It is important to look beyond the rim of your teacup and that’s exactly what the Congress programme will do for usAndrĂ© Kaldenhoff (Chairman of the Host Committee)


Interesting Architecture in Leipzig, Germany
Team KWC is quite impressed with the ICCA committee’s association with award winning Scottish Conservation Charity, Trees for Life, which works toward native forest, ecosystem and habitat restoration.

An excerpt from the ICCA website:
To date we have planted over 800,000 trees across our target area and assisted in the regeneration of more than 4,5000 hectares of land.
Trees for Life not only seeks to counteract and reverse the centuries of deforestation which have led to the almost complete loss of Scotland's native woodlands, but also to be pioneers in the newly emerging field of ecological restoration.”

Repeat and Referral Business in the Conferencing World


As with most other service industry related businesses, the Professional Conference Organizer business involves building a loyal customer base through repeat and referral business. You must have heard the saying ‘one satisfied client review can generate an unlimited customer base;’ this holds doubly true for the conference management business.

Panel Discussion during FICPI, India Symposium 2009
A conference is not a uni-dimensional product or service such as, say, toothpaste or a restaurant (I realize that a restaurant is also multidimensional in terms of service, ambiance, and cuisine, but it typically only sells a single quantifiable product: food). The multi-dimensional aspects of a conference, such as dinners, discussion panels, breakout meetings, coffee and snack breaks throughout the day, transportation requirements and so on, demand an extremely meticulous eye for detail and consistent deliveries on behalf of the organizers. We want to be very sure that every tiny aspect of the conference goes well for our clients and delegates.

Captivating Traditional Dance, YPO Royal Rajasthan
As a testament to our quality of service and dedication to creating a perfect conference experience, we have built a large client base through return and referral business. Some of our return and referral based clients include the Asian Patent Attorneys Association [APAA], Young Presidents Organization [YPO], Metal Junction, International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property [AIPPI], National Seed Association of India, Indian Tea Association, Federation Internationale Des Conseils en Propreite Industrielle [FICPI], and many more.

At KWC, we make it our mission to meticulously plan and organize such events so that conference attendees will find their experience to be extraordinary.

Here are five ways we can make your conference experience in India unforgettably fun:

1.       Elephant Polo
YPO, Jaipur--Elephant Polo

Who says polo should only be played on horseback? Our guests at YPO will tell you that playing the popular colonial sport on elephant back was extremely amusing.

2.       Enjoy India’s Numerous Cultures by Watching a Classical Indian Dance
Classical Dance during the 71st Congress of FIP, 2011

          After watching a scintillating classical dance sequence, you can bust some of your own dance moves on the dance floor!

4.       Have a Big, Fat, Indian Style Wedding Ceremony
YPO, Royal Rajasthan

Weddings in India are celebrated with a melange of bright colours, lights, music, and dancing! Whether you’re participating in a mock wedding as a guest or a couple to be married, you will get the chance of experiencing a [very loud] magical moment that will surely be memorable for years to come.

5.       Tours, Tours, and More Tours
The Taj Mahal

Whether it’s pre- or post- conference tours, spouse/partner tours, city/day tours, we’ve organized a multitude of tours for our conference guests over the years. All of India is open to you, whether you want to explore the riveting backwaters of Kerala, visit the luxurious castles of Jaipur, or of course, marvel at the amazing Mughal architecture of the Taj Mahal.
