Through being an industry leader and offering an outstanding service to our clients we have joined the select PCO Alliance Network of Gauteng-based Professional Conference Organisers. As part of the PCO Alliance, our UP A TONE Events team benefits from a wealth of cumulative experience, extensive partner networks, and excellent relationships within the events industry. We are governed by a strict code of conduct and very proud to be part of this influential group of industry leaders.
What is a PCO
Not only does UP A TONE specialise in events and conference management we now also offer an extra benefit at no additional charge.
UP A TONE Events is a PCO (Professional Conference Organiser), This means we are a company that mainly specialises in MICE (meeting, incentives, conferences and events). In our many years of experience in the events industry we have extended and built strong relationships with a large number of venues and hotel groups in the tourism industry.
This gives us the ability to best place your group, conference, incentive or event at any venue in the country and abroad. We offer this specific service free of charge as we have an agreement directly with the venues where as THEY pay us a commission for business reverted to them. This has absolutely no effect on the price for you as the client and you will still pay the venue directly without any commission added to your bill.
