The AIPC Africa Summit at Meetings Africa | February 22, 2016
AIPC’s mission is to encourage, support and recognize excellence in convention centre management. A key element in this mission is addressed by developing and operating specialized training and professional development programs that focus on key elements of the convention centre development, management and marketing processes and to deliver these in ways that are most accessible to members.
In this spirit, the second AIPC Africa Summit will take place in collaboration with Meetings Africa and our African members in a program as part of the overall Meetings Africa in the Sandton Convention Center Johannesburg from February 23-24, 2016.

The program also features a number of interactions with other elements of the Meetings Africa program in order to encourage further exchanges with clients and governmental attendees on topics relating to convention centre issues.
