"IPAA was instrumental in the success of the White Ribbon Promotional Event held for the SA Public Sector. This dedicated team strived to ensure the event ran efficiently, professionally and on budget.
IPAA not only has the skills in event management but also endeavours to understand your core business. Their support in promoting the prevention of violence against women has been invaluable."

"We really value our partnership with IPAA.  We have worked closely with them on several events and our experiences have been excellent.   They have provided us with great advice on some tricky aspects of event management, and they certainly understand our needs and the nature of the public sector. We are always impressed with the level of service when we interact with them – they are so helpful and responsive. It is such a relief to be able to leave event management in the hands of this highly organised group of professionals!"
