-speaking and presenting.
Comments Rogers: “I feel tremendously privileged to have played leading roles in BACD, the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), the European Federation of Associations of Professional Congress Organisers (EFAPCO) and, more recently, Eventia. I’ve also been able to contribute fully to bodies such as the Business Visits and Events Partnership and to the European Advisory Council of Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI). I’m now relishing the opportunity to focus on those areas of our industry in which I’ve got particular experience, and hope to be able to make a valuable contribution to the industry’s continuing development and evolution into a genuine profession.”
