APG organized its 47th Annual Meeting at the Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon.

More than 200 attendants were present in this event in Lisbon. The program contemplated a presentation from WFPMA President, Pieter Haen, and EAPM President, Izy Béhar, regarding the international survey – Creating People Advantage 2015.

The event ended with a dinner where all APG members with 25 years were congratulated and 2 awards were also given – APG Company (Groundforce) and APG Merit (Jorge Marques – former APG President).

Here is the message that WFPMA President sent:

Dear Mario,
I most sincerely compliment and gratulate you not only with the congress, but also the celebration of your 50th anniversary of APG.
I have been attending and speaking at many congresses and conferences all over the world and as an expert I can tell you that the organization and content of the congress were impeccable and of the highest professional standards, but more than that it has been your warm and overwhelming hospitality and friendship that have made this congress a milestone and an unforgettable event.
Please bring my compliments and thanks to all members of your staff and organization, who have been part of the team that realized this event.
It was a great pleasure to making your acquaintance and have the opportunity to meet many of your members and former presidents. A special moment was the meeting with your founder Raul Caldeira, who has been as well one of the founding fathers of the WFPMA.
We certainly will stay in touch!
Warmest greetings,
Pieter Haen
president WFPMA 2012-2014
