Professional Conference Organisers

If you are looking to organise a conference or event in New Zealand, we recommend you enlist the help of one of our world-class Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs).


A range of services

PCOs act as consultants to the client or organising committee as well as handling the multitude of tasks involved in the project. Their advice is impartial, and the committee or client retains control of the event and sets the policy with the PCO.

PCOs provide a comprehensive range of advice and administrative support, starting with venue research and feasibility. PCOs can also assist with bids for conferences in particular destinations. 

PCOs also offer: 

  • Budgeting 
  • Marketing and promotion support 
  • Programming, sponsorship, and exhibition management 
  • Secretarial, administrative and registration management 
  • Contract negotiation and management 
  • On-site management evaluation 

 Working with a New Zealand BEIA Approved PCO

BEIA Approved PCOs offer a wealth of knowledge, years of experience, and the skills to handle the most demanding and complex projects with style. 

BEIA Approved PCOs are bound by a Code of Ethics, Rules & Responsibilities and must adhere to Minimum Service Levels and Business Practices. They undergo an annual compliance review to confirm that they continue to fully comply with the BEIA Approved requirements.
