APAC Agency Accreditation Programme Launched by ICESAP

ICESAP – The Incentive, Conference & Event Society Asia Pacific have announced they will launch an event agency accreditation programme dedicated Asia Pacific

The society was formed three years ago and the accreditation process has been at the heart of their plans recently. The forthcoming ICESAP conference is to be held on November 30th – December 2nd at the St.Regis in Singapore where the programme will be officially launched

Nigel Gaunt ICESAP president says “It was an immensely encouraging sign that ICESAP members recognised the need for such a designation that offers an ‘excellent opportunity’ for those agencies seeking to demonstrate their expertise, professionalism and dedication to the highest standards of best practice and governance in the IC&E sector,”

“ICESAP also recognised there was a fundamental barrier to long term growth and prosperity for the sector; a lack of self-governance by the intermediary agencies in the industry, with no barrier to entry, no code of conduct, no probity checks or capability checks on agency owners, managers or staff.”

Recent appointee ICESAP Chairman, Tom Monahan said that, “We are all aware that the service and professionalism of IC&E practitioners can vary significantly and often the best are lumped in with the mediocre. The ICESAP Agency Accreditation is being launched to provide a means by which we can raise standards, lift the profile and appreciation of the sector, improve agency performance and provide reassurance to clients.”
