Only a CINZ Approved PCO can offer you this peace of mind because they are the conference professional you can trust.  Why?  Because to become a CINZ Approved PCO, members must on an annual basis meet certain criteria prescribed by CINZ.  This ensures that the PCO has the necessary systems, skill set and experience required to run a wide range of events.  The criteria requirements are rigorous and demanding and designed so that only those who meet the criteria can attain the right to call themselves CINZ Approved PCOs.  The CINZ criteria is inspected and tested, to ensure that the PCO's work and systems are of a high standard.  Not only are CINZ Approved PCOs required to meet the strict criteria, they are bound by a Code of Ethics, Rules and Responsibilities as determined by CINZ.

Outside the strict criteria set by CINZ, all CINZ Approved PCOs must also have a proof of compliance in tax reporting, secure financial systems, health and safety, carry Public Liability Insurance and have legal and accounting teams as part of their business structure ... further reinforcing that a CINZ Approved PCO really does give you peace of mind.
