Fourth Constantinus International Award awarded in Seoul, South Korea
“The International Constantinus Award is a worldwide success story”
- Austrian Chairman and initiator Alfred Harl
The “Constantinus International Award” was awarded to the worlds’ best IT and Consulting projects at the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI) congress on September 25th in Seoul, South Korea. For the fourth time consultants from all over the world were invited to submit projects with exceptional customer value. The Constantinus International Award was modeled after the Austrian Constantinus Award of the Austrian Professional Association of Management Consultancy and Information Technology (UBIT).
“The Constantinus International Award is already a much sought-after international decoration for outstanding consulting performances”, underlines UBIT-Association Chairman Alfred Harl the importance of the global award. "The award honors the best of the consulting industry and their customers; it recognizes in particular innovative solutions. South Korea is one of the world's innovation leaders. We are therefore particularly pleased that we were able to win Seoul as this year’s venue.”

Many IMC’s are organizing events on a regular basis.
Today, there are many new IT support tools that can provide integrated marketing, management, social media, publishing and monetizing processes – supporting multiple platforms, mobile devices, social media and real-time updates to schedules, sessions and participant feedback.
An example of this is the CrowdCompass suite of solution elements. All can be customized to your needs/branding/unique application. CMC Today is not recommending this or any other specific product, but the folks at CrowdCompass have provided us with information and web-liks to their offerings for you to see some of the potential aspects that your IMC could consider as you develop your developmental programming business.
