Global issues take centre stage at PCMA forum

Some of the top minds in the meetings industry will gather early in the New Year in New Orleans for the Professional Conference and Meetings Association (PCMA) Annual Meeting.

Taking place from 11-14 January, the event provides both learning and networking opportunities. To reflect the unfolding economic conditions and global happenings, such as the recent activity in Mumbai, India – PCMA has added new sessions to address the top issues facing the meetings industry.

New and expanded sessions focusing on the airline industry, security issues and the economy will present meetings professionals with solutions for navigating through the challenges that 2009 is rapidly presenting.

“I’m really pleased that we acted quickly to pull together a session on safety and security in light of the recent events in Mumbai,” said PCMA president and chief executive Deborah Sexton. “As a result of these developments, this topic has been pushed back to the front of our minds. We’ve put together an excellent panel of experts to address the concerns that meeting professionals have been expressing on this issue.”

“For 2009, we are completely focused on delivering the most up-to-date and relevant educational programming possible to help our members deliver more value to their organisations,” Sexton added. “Difficult times also present opportunities to stand out from the crowd and initiate change – PCMA will be right there, delivering the appropriate education and tools necessary for our members to succeed in 2009.”
