The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) has joined the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO).ABPCO exists to share experience and best practice between UK conference organisers and its members organise around 3,500 events a year."Engaging with the conference and meetings industry is important for us and we are keen to contribute, hear and share best practice wherever we can," says SECC director of sales, Ben Goedegebuure. "ABPCO always puts it clients first, which matches our strategy at the SECC; so it seemed a natural step to join.""The SECC’s experience as a venue will be hugely beneficial to our members and its commitment to quality and continued improvement is second to none," adds ABPCO’s chair, Rebecca Cadman-Jones.The SECC is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
