“I commend the PCMA team for their dedication to reconvening safely and effectively in our beautiful destination and with the active participation and assistance of the city and the region,” said Panos Tzivanidis, Director, Corporate Events & Services – The International Olympic Committee, and PCMA Advisory Board Member. “Reconnecting business event professionals to explore and engage across three important aspects, including talent, ROI and the future of the business events industry is timely, and will serve as a much-needed catalyst for the industry’s recovery in the EMEA region.”
