The EPMA reports that registration is now open for Euro PM2020 which will take place online for the first time from 5-7 October 2020.

The association reportedly plans to present more than 200 technical papers through its new online streaming platform.

‘We have sincere belief that this could be the most successful Euro PM Congress yet, despite the shift to a virtual platform,’ said executive director, Lionel Aboussouan. ‘Conducting the event online will hopefully put greater focus on the high-quality content of the technical papers in 2020, and the live Q and A sessions will allow delegates to extract even greater knowledge from speakers, overcoming reservations of public speaking some attendees may have.’

‘We truly believe a virtual platform can extend the reach of EPMA to a global audience, and hopefully breakdown the barriers long distance travel and differing time zones creates,’ added congress manager Sabine Hazoumé. ‘This virtual event will undoubtedly be a springboard for a greater online presence for EPMA, and open new audiences for our future events.’
