Passionate about our business

Our Values

As we move further into the 21st century our belief and passion for face-to-face events remains as strong as ever. We and our customers are adapting to the realities of a rapidly changing and sometimes uncertain world, so we are acutely aware of the need to remain agile, informed and connected. Emerging technologies, massive demographic shifts, regulation, governance and a new age of relative austerity mean that we must constantly evaluate our strategy to better serve the sector and to guarantee the value of your meetings.

Looking forward to the next 30 years we are committed to building our global presence and relationships, to developing our human and technical resources, to maintaining client synergies, to building ever more specialized solutions and most importantly: being reliable and discreet partners in your success.

Dedicated to your event

With more than 120 pro-active and multi-disciplinary employees from more than 22 countries, K.I.T. Group has organised over 2,700 conferences across 5 continents for 50 to 28,000 participants in 30 years.

 

Our staff members come from various backgrounds, event or tourism management of course, but also business, political studies, law, languages or cultural management for instance. This is definitely an asset when we welcome delegates coming from all over the world.

Representative Offices

The “brains” of our organisation are centred at the Berlin headquarters, working with our technological tools, the local knowledge is at our representative offices. This is the synergy of K.I.T. Group.

Standing behind the skilled logistics professionals of K.I.T. Group are 75 world-wide business offices which represent over 130 countries. These offices are our go-to counsel when it comes to the maze of taxes, customs, import/export, visa requirements, and all of those sticky topics which only a person on the ground can truly be 100% knowledgeable.

Our local representatives are not travel agents but knowledgeable business people. They are usually located within the structure of chambers of commerce and can give us a true support at financial, juristic and governmental level.

These business offices help to give K.I.T. Group the ability to work within the rules, laws, customs and culture of each host country in which we work.

Taking care of our environment and society

Our Engagement

As a worldwide company, we wish to be able to give something back, and Corporate Social Responsibility helps us to administer our business processes in such a way as to have a more positive overall impact on society and the world at large.

Education

Continual renewal of skills is the best way to ensure efficiency and high productivity. This is why the continuous development and engagement of the team is very important to K.I.T. Group.

To ensure a strategic and structured development, the K.I.T. Group Skill Data base is currently in development, a knowledge transfer and an internal communication task force (both formed from a variety of team members to be able to cover all perspectives from the different business areas) are in place and active. The Human Resources development plan covers knowledge of the trade of conference management, techniques and procedures as well as soft skills for the different roles/profiles. As an example,a holistic leadership programme covering all aspects of modern leadership has been launched within the entire corporate group in 2014 and is still ongoing. These activities motivate the individual team members to excel in their job and at the same time ensures SOP and a common ground and quality throughout the whole team.

Sustainability

As a Professional Conference Organiser with more than 30 years of experience, K.I.T. Group understands the importance of sustainable events and is committed to minimizing the negative environmental impact while organising meetings and events. Whether the issue is saving energy, reducing waste or decreasing CO² emissions of an event, we have numerous solutions for how to be more environmentally-friendly.

Our Green Meeting Policy includes guidelines which encourage those working at the conference to increase their environmentally-conscious behaviour. We also would like to be a professional partner for our clients on all questions concerning the organisation of environmentally-friendly events. Greening Policy: No matter whether it is a large or small event, there are many aspects about conferences which have a negative impact on our environment.

K.I.T. Group has already implemented several environmental measures at various levels of conference organisation and continues to innovate as time goes on.

Quality Management

In order to further improve quality and consistency with an eye to safety and monetary savings, we at K.I.T. Group have instituted a Quality Management System consisting of various assurance methods.The implementation of task forces charged with the mission of finding new and innovative ways of operating, procurement for high quality with cost analysis in mind,and evaluation of statistics and reports have all proven beneficial.
