Bid Management

Bidding for an international conference is a wonderful opportunity to raise the profile of your national industry, your organisation and your professional career. The process brings together stakeholders of that industry and helps build long term relationships that ultimately help to both raise standards and showcase your local talent to a global community.  

CPI have been working with National Associations and Ambassadors for 25 years to bid for and win the rights to host international conferences. Our complimentary bid service helps guide you through the entire bid process from research stage to onsite marketing and presentations. Our winning formula has delivered a 92% success rate.  

We would be delighted to talk to your team about any potential future bids and to support you in putting the best case forward for your organisation, your city and indeed your country.
