IAPCO Launches On-Line Meetings Industry Dictionary

  • Published by Vedat
Meetings industry terminology is now available at your fingertips and, as is so much today, at the press of a button, thanks to IAPCO's new on-line dictionary.

iapcoFirst Published in 1987, in collaboration with the Joint Interpreting and Conference Service European Commission, IAPCO, the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers, produced the first Meetings Industry Terminology Directory, or simply a Dictionary of the Meetings Industry. Initially consisting of less than 700 words in 8 languages, the dictionary has been updated on a regular basis with languages added, now totalling over 16000 words covering the current 15 languages.

Communication - spoken or written - enabling the exchange of information and ideas has always held a pivotal position in a civilised society, and no more so than in the communications industry of the meetings profession. There is an ever-growing number of international meetings and congresses being organised in every sphere of life, on all continents. Embracing the great diversity of services, techniques and equipment, the social media, technology and management, this facility covers the full range of terminology in different languages, with definitions designed to harmonise usage.

Available also as a hard copy book, this facility is now available on-line with the appropriate search engines.
