The Conference Bureau has been totally incredible. From the very first draft of an amazing bid document to helping us show conference scouts around, their support has exceeded anything I could have asked for. As someone who is brand new at holding a conference, they made things so very much easier than it otherwise would have been. Thank you.

I am extremely grateful for all the support I have received when bidding for ICCE 2017. All the steps have been so easy, and the amount of advice I received is amazing! The bid and the presentation material I received impressed the Executive Committee of APSCE – they all said they wished the conference could happen much sooner!"
