CHICAGO, IL, May 27, 2016 –
The Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) will continue to expand the reach of its activities in Europe, by again forming a partnership with the Meetings Show which will take place June 14-16 in London, UK.
Across the three day event, representatives from the association will deliver a series of educational keynote sessions, tailored specifically for corporate and association meetings and events planners. Themes will include; Creating a Legacy, Leadership and Managing Teams and The Future of Meetings Study.
The PCMA’s partnership with the Meetings Show 2016 is part of a continued initiative to further expand the association’s growth in Europe, whilst at the same time, supporting the mutual objectives of both organizations - to deliver superior and innovative education and promote the value of professional convention management.
The involvement with the Meetings Show also compliments two further events taking place in Europe this summer organised by the PCMA, including the Global Corporate Summit, taking place in Barcelona and the 4th Annual Global Professionals Conference – Europe, hosted in Paris.
The Global Corporate Summit will take place 20-24 July at the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I, Barcelona, Spain. This exclusive invitation-only event will give attendees the opportunity to network with senior-level event organizers, enjoying a programme of high level content including; working with global economies, managing a cross-cultural workforce and strategic branding.
In addition, the Global Professionals Conference – Europe will take place at the Palais des Congrès de Paris, August 30 – September 1 2016. Again, invite-only, this event will bring together 25 global planners from top associations and association management companies, along with 12 senior-level suppliers from the region, representing convention bureaux and centers. The conference’s goal is to give participants a deeper understanding of the opportunities available throughout Europe and how to maximize business events in the region.
Speaking of the forthcoming activities planned across Europe, Sherrif Karamat, CAE, Chief Operating Officer, PCMA commented; “In addition to further reaching out to a European audience, both our partnership with the Meetings Show and the delivery of the Global Corporate Summit and Global Professionals Conference will further provide high quality education for our members and customers, particularly for those seeking to develop their understanding of the European region’s potential, with a core focus on cultural differences, economic drivers, budgeting in the global world and risk management. By creating various platforms for exchange, we can enhance the knowledge sharing across multiple borders and construct meetings that transform business.”
