Registration now open for PCMAs EMEA

Lausanne, Switzerland will be the spectacular setting for one of the regions first in-person conferences for the entire business events industry since 2019.

 

PCMA TODAY, May 27th, announced registration is open for the inaugural Convening EMEA (formerly known as the European Influencer Summit), an omnichannel conference for business event professionals throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Supported by Lausanne Tourism, Switzerland Tourism, and The International Olympic Committee, the event will take place within Lausannes SwissTech Convention Centre 17-19, October 2021. Further details and registration are now available at www.conveningemea.org Registration fees have been frozen at the 2019 event rate as PCMA continues to do its part to provide support and opportunities for the industry.

"I commend the PCMA team for their dedication to reconvening safely and effectively in our beautiful destination and with the active participation and assistance of the city and the region," said Panos Tzivanidis, Director, Corporate Events & Services – The International Olympic Committee, and PCMA Advisory Board Member. “Reconnecting business event professionals to explore and engage across three important aspects, including talent, ROI and the future of the business events industry is timely, and will serve as a much-needed catalyst for the industrys recovery in the EMEA region."

The revitalized event will offer access to hosted planner groups and scholarships. Full details and application forms are located on the conference website at www.conveningemea.org. The hosted planner group features complimentary registration, networking opportunities with 5-10 business professionals, including a PCMA partner, hotel accommodation and a Swiss train travel pass. The PCMA Foundation will support scholarships for select individuals, which entitles the recipient to complimentary registration, Swiss train travel pass, hotel accommodation, air travel and a one-year PCMA membership.

"Convening EMEA will be equal parts celebration and exploration – the next chapter in our journey with a bright pathway forward for business events," said Jaimé Bennett, PCMA Business Director, EMEA.

"Attendees will have the “we time” they have been craving – reconnecting with business partners and clients while together exploring new ideas on getting back to business with redesigned workstyles."

Convening EMEA will give attendees what they need most for whats next: Simply connecting.
