The Catalonian Association of Convention and Meeting Organizers was founded in 1986. It is a blanket organization for specialists in the organization of meetings, commonly known as PCO (Professional Conference Organizers). Member firms must surpass a very demanding admissions process.


Organizing events, whether conventions, congresses or meetings, involves being able to combine a series of services and activities in and from a variety of fields and suppliers. Planning and coordinating each element requires detailed, careful and step-by-step control.


A professional convention organizer is a specialist in the organization of conventions, congresses, meetings and other similar events, including seminars, symposiums and workshops to bring together a group of experts to debate and further their knowledge on a common topic of interest.
