JCS is proud to be a partner/member of the following international
INCON Group is a worldwide partnership of leading professional conference
organizers and event producers. Started in 1990 by some of the world's
leading PCOs, INCON aims to help clients by providing a "one-stop
shop" - no matter where an event is held. Each of the partners
in the INCON network is a prominent PCO in their own country and
each has the benefit of belonging to a global company.
By using INCON Partners to organize meetings on a regular basis,
clients can reduce the need to repeatedly brief a new PCO, and thus
ensure continuity of service from a company that already has a thorough
awareness of your organization and its unique requirements.

aim was to evaluate practical ways to get the travel industry involved
in the rapidly expanding market of international meetings and to
exchange actual information related to their operations in this
market. This initiative proved to have been timely as the meeting
industry soon expanded and candidates from all the various sectors
of the meetings industry worldwide applied for ICCA membership.
