    Summer School in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

    This year, the APCE’s Summer School moves to the Canary Island Conference Centre, right in the centre of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, reside Las Canteras beach. This second school will be held from 21 to 23 September and, just like last year’s event, will involve meetings industry players from across Spain.

Among the various issues to be addressed in the planned working days is the use of databases: APCE DATA. This exceptional database, shared by APCE members, aims to facilitate and identify potential clients through different accesses.

The APCE Summer School, a unique initiative in Spain, is one of  the Association’s main bids to boost the professionalism of teams of personnel in conference centres, by making them increasingly competitive, and by giving more value to the centres’ brand image.

In 2009, around 30 professionals from 15 member conference centres attended the APCE’s 1st Summer School, which took place at Madrid’s IFEMA Convention Centre in July.

Registration will shortly be open for all those people interested in attending this key date in the capital of Gran Canaria.
