Ana Juan Congresos has been founded in 1968 as one of the first PCOs in South America. From the early beginning the company has been involved in the organization of national and international congresses, conventions, meetings and exhibitions.

We have the experienced, multilingual permanent staff to organize congresses with an attendance ranging from 10 to 20000 participants.

Our services can be adjusted to suit a varying degree of involvement. We can handle the full organization of an event, or we can act as a local support to a core PCO.

Our vast expertise allows us to satisfy a wide range of needs with flexibility and excellence.

Ana Juan Congresos has its own travel company which handles negotiation with hotels, management of bookings, special tailor made tours and incentive trips.

Aware of the importance of emerging technologies and their impact in the event management industry, we place great importance on our information systems, developed to handle registrations, abstract submissions and handling, reviewing process, group registration, scientific program and financial management of events.

Reliable professional suppliers in the field of audiovisual equipment, exhibition construction, printing and design as well as established business relations with interpreters, scientific publishers, congress venues and hotels ensure the successful management of the events.

Ana Juan Congresos has proudly and successfully organized the 21st World Congress of Dermatology, the largest congress ever held in Argentina. The 21st WCD took place between September 30 and October 5, 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Let us present you some figures to describe its magnitude: 17000 delegates from all over the world; 3,000 Pharmaceutical Companies representatives; 261 sessions included in the scientific program; more than 4,000 abstracts have been received, 6,770 square meters of exhibition space.

Because of its infrastructure, and tourist, cultural and historic attractions, its favorable business atmosphere and a convenient rate of exchange both for the visitor and the organizer, Argentina is positioned as one of the top destination for events in Latin America.

We can organize site inspections and provide realistic and updated information about the country, the city and its facilities and resources.

Ana Juan Congresos is member of ICCA (International Congress & Convention Association) and the Argentinean Congress Organizers Association (AOCA).

Meeting Makers is an owner-managed professional conference organiser. We have been organising events for over 27 years, making us one of the UK's longest-established PCOs. While we might appear small compared with our global competitors, with offices in Glasgow and Salisbury we are actually one of the largest independently-owned PCOs in the country.

Our significant experience over a range of different types of events allows us to work in partnership with organising committees to understand their needs, and to deliver a successful conference, within budget, to both them and their delegates, while our size allows us to focus on our clients and their events and deliver a personal, as well as a professional service.

We work closely with our clients to ensure their aims are achieved and most have come to regard Meeting Makers as an extension of their own team. Over 40% of our business comes to us via repeat clients or referral which we feel is testament to the high quality of service Meeting Makers provides.

The key to Meeting Makers' ability to deliver excellence to our clients is in the experience and expertise of our staff. Our experts in conference bid support, project management, delegate services, conference accounts, IT, sponsorship and exhibition provide the attention to detail, marketing and fundraising expertise and tight financial control which will ensure the commercial success of your conference. Our creative flair will make it an experience your delegates will never forget. We are large enough to cope with complex projects, but small enough to care and give a personal service, which we believe is an unrivalled combination.

Our service is not only personal, reliable, efficient and consistent but also cost-effective. All our congresses are delivered with enthusiasm and skill, on time and on budget.
