WHAT OTHERS SAY

  • This is the type of platform that differentiates from other events, as it enhances education complemented by quality personal interaction.”

    Annalisa Ponchia, CEO, European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT)
  • I personally enjoyed the ‘Disruptive Thinking’ session in which we had to work together discuss relationships - coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success - and how to create intersection between commercial gain and social good.”

    Carola van der Hoeff Headshot
    Carola van der Hoeff, COO, International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP)
  • The speakers showing new revenue streams were all interesting, in different ways, and some of their case studies are immediately applicable to any event. Finally, I thought the concluding workshop was well structured and gave me a few nuggets I am already sharing with my team - overall, a positive experience, in a wonderful setting in Seville.”

    Luca Segantini, Joint CEO at ESOT – European Society for Organ Transplantation

The European Influencers Summit will feature an “Innovate + Elevate Hub,” an evolution of the “Innovate + Elevate Arena” introduced at 2019 PCMA Convening Leaders as a new approach to the traditional exhibition space. The Learning Hub will offer key areas for experiential learning and collaboration, including a podcast studio, open workspace for attendees to continue conversations sparked by education sessions, visual depictions of selected education sessions and plenaries, among other activations that will be revealed in due course.
