The Professional Convention Management Association is launching the PCMA Global Medical Meetings Summit July 17–20 at the ExCeL London convention center. The invitation-only event aims to bring together a select group of senior medical meeting professionals and medical association CEOs to explore the challenges and opportunities facing today’s medical meetings professionals.

The summit will open with a keynote by healthcare trendspotter and futurist Magnus Lindkvist, followed by facilitated discussions on revenue streams, sponsorships and future funding, the effects of government regulations, continuing medical education, and how medical meeting executives can play a vital role in enabling their organizations to reach their goals.

“PCMA was founded as a medical meetings organization,” said Deborah Sexton, president and CEO. “While our membership has greatly diversified since our first annual meeting in 1956, we have continued throughout the years to provide robust education and resources to the medical meetings sub-specialty. This PCMA Summit will bring together global leaders who are innovators in the medical meetings industry that can critically analyze and openly discuss solutions that position organizations for success.”

The PCMA Global Medical Meetings Summit will be hosted by ExCeL London, London & Partners, and Grange Hotels.
