The 51st Asian and Pacific Coconut Community (APCC) Conference, a four-day event, was conducted at the Crowne Plaza Kochi, Kerala from Feb. 2 to Feb. 5. This conference showcased to promote, coordinate and harmonize all the activities of the coconut industry which sustains the lives of millions of small farmers as well as those engaged in production, processing and marketing of coconut products.
Executive Events managed the entire event which was inaugrated by Shri. Radha Mohan Singh, Honourable Union Minister of Agriculture. The four day meeting was attended by 18 coconut producing member countries from the Asia and Pacific regions including two associate members of Kenya and Jamaica and marked the effectiveness of the use of coconut and agriculture and also extra information to the agriculturists in and around the globe.
The APCC is an intergovernmental organisation under the aegis of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP). The organisation has 18 coconut-producing member countries. The APCC member countries account for 90 per cent of the world’s coconut production and export of coconut products. The annual gathering of coconut development workers, researchers, farmers, processors, importers, exporters and government policy makers in APCC member countries is an intergovernmental organisation established in 1969 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) held once every two years.
Speaking on the occasion, Raju Kannampuzha, MD, Executive Events said, "Our expertise in MICE management made us to win the pitch for this conference. As this conference is organised by a Government body, there were four other agencies to participate in the pitch. The major challenge was to match the satisfaction of the client and to make the event or the conference better than they expected."
Executive Events was roped in to manage the entire four-day event which took place from Feb. 2 to Feb. 5.
