FORM A LOCAL PARTNERSHIP
A committed local partnership is essential for a successful ISPCAN International Congress. Local child protection organizations partner with ISPCAN and the national Convention and Visitors’ Bureaus to share joint responsibility for the scientific and business aspects of the Congress.
Local Organization: The local organization may be an association, NGO, hospital, non-profit, business, ministry, institute, agency, university, university department of medicine, psychology, psychiatry, social work, law, or criminal justice or another organization dedicated to protecting children from abuse and neglect. The local organization manages the program development and scientific aspects and can choose to hire a destination management company for onsite logistics or manage this aspect themselves. ISPCAN does not provide this information as we are seeking to grow our network and this partnership must be strong between the convention bureau and the local host.
Convention and Visitor’s Bureau: The Convention and Visitor’s Bureau assist with business aspects such as sponsorship, business and community engagement, marketing, budgeting, PCO selection, logistical matters, and assisting with the preparation of the expression of interest and bid proposal.
PCO: Professional Conference Organizers can be the third partner in this local partnership. Sometimes they assume liability and profit in the financial model, or they may also be hired as a professional service.
ISPCAN receives multiple bids for each Congress and it is a competitive, yet consultative process. ISPCAN is dedicated to providing support, feedback, and assistance every step of the way to prepare your strongest bid possible. Strong, successful bids not selected for their first choice of dates will be offered alternative dates for their Congress.
