Our mission is to create “live” and creative conference experiences that meet your strategic goals. With a dedication to quality, we efficiently take care of every detail in a cost-conscious manner. We have accreditation with IAPCO (The International Association of Professional Congress Organisers) and AIPCO (The Association of Irish Professional Congress Organisers) with our CEO Nicola McGrane sitting as council members for both.

“We presented CPI with the ultimate challenge. With just ten months before the event itself, could they help us organise our Conference? An International Congress, actually, where very possibly 1000 delegates might be attending. We were let down by our previous PCO and had to part company with them, which meant a real challenge for their successor, in terms of time and picking up the threads. From the moment we met with CPI we understood that not all PCOs are the same. CPI’s can-do enthusiasm, confident experience and quiet professionalism stood them head and shoulders above the other recommended providers and over the past 10 months, our partnership has delivered the largest ever worldwide gathering of research managers and administrators in the outstanding city of Edinburgh, with nearly 1200 delegates from 55 nations. The size and complexity of this event is eye-watering and only an operation of the capability of CPI, with their contacts, systems and significant back -office operation could make an event of this type possible for a small company such as ARMA. Would we use them again? Belfast Waterfront, June 2019: planning now underway!”
