peterPeter Sugg retires from PCO Association executive with pride.

There were certainly some head winds when we started, however these eased with each passing year as support continued to grow.

“I’m proud of what the Association has achieved and the way cost effective services have been set up and delivered for members.

We developed an education and communication model that took advantage of emerging technologies and were the first Association in the Meetings Industry to embrace social media by launching a Weekly Blog, use Webinars for training and meetings, and actively engaging with Facebook and Twitter users.” he said.

Peter will be spending more time in his own Conference Management Business which launched in 1990.

President Barry Neame paid tribute to Peter Sugg’s vision and commitment in establishing an Association specifically for Professional Conference and Event managers and people employed in the industry sector.

“Peter can retire in the knowledge that his vision has been realised with a thriving and dynamic association delivering benefits for its members and being a strong contributor to education in the sector ” Neame said

The executive will now consist of Barry Neame, Karen Sainsbury and Paula Leishman who are ably supported by PCO Association staff Maxine Tod and Cindy Axisa.

Join us for the 10th Annual PCOA Conference and Exhibition, to be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 26 – 28 November 2017
