MCI has opened a new office in Munich, Germany, following a merger with EMC Event & Meeting Company GmbH. EMC has over 15 years of expertise in Pharma Meetings and Strategic Meeting Management Programmes (SMMP) and is one of the leading congress, incentive and event management agencies specializing in the healthcare sector in Germany.
