PCMA will hold its second Global Corporate Summit in Milan

CHICAGO, IL February 27, 2014 –  Building upon the success of the Professional Convention Management Association’s (PCMA) inaugural Global Corporate Summit, PCMA is taking the next step in holding its 2nd Global Corporate Summit by bringing together some of the most senior Global Meeting Executives in the world. This year the event will be held in Milan, Italy on July 16-20, 2014.

This exclusive invitation-only event – taking place at the Milano Congressi – will allow global corporate meeting planners to collectively take a deeper look at issues they are facing in this dynamic global environment. Including the increasing complexities to manage global teams, and execute successful events across multiple continents. The event will also include a limited number of suppliers that are well established in global events to provide additional context to the dialogue and foster a more robust discussion and networking experience for all attendees.

“The inaugural Global Corporate Summit provided a framework to discuss current pressing issues with my industry peers. It also provided an opportunity to for me to hear experts speak on globalization, technology, and outsourcing to mention a few areas that impact my business today. I cannot wait to re-engage with my colleagues in Milan for PCMA’s 2nd Global Corporate Summit,” said Klaus Andreas Span, IBM.

“PCMA is committed to helping corporate meetings executives excel at their profession and at the same time provide them with the level of knowledge and business networking opportunities that will drive their organization’s success. This Summit brings together some of the most senior executives to tackle issues and opportunities that affect us all. Upon the completion of the Summit, PCMA will ensure it produces products and services to benefit the larger corporate meeting planning community,” said PCMA’s Chief Operating Officer, Sherrif Karamat.
