The Next Journey for the Business Events Industry

PCMA’s Recovery Discovery plan is an ongoing campaign of research, reskilling, event experimentation and education to help our members and global stakeholders navigate their businesses and careers to a place where business events professionals, organizations, brands and communities will thrive through the pandemic and beyond.

The plan is based on three core elements as recommended in PCMA’s Business Events Compass:

Recovery is coming. We want to get back to the business of connecting people, ideas and opportunities. We also know that you want answers and insights on what the future holds for your careers and businesses. PCMA is leading the charge of recovery and we are thrilled to provide you Convening Leaders 2021.

Insights on opportunities for your business and actions for your career in order to thrive through the pandemic and beyond. Subscribers will receive bi-monthly updates with new data and insights based on participant demand, economic and public health policy changes.

Our industry has seen unprecedented growth for the last 10+ years and we have all benefited. Now, many of our colleagues and clients need our help. We invite you to make a difference in the recovery of the global business events industry by donating to Accelerating Reskilling.

PCMA and Convene have been surveying business event professionals — planners and suppliers — to understand our community’s short- and long-term expectations. See how attitudes and predictions have evolved.
