PCMA will run the education sessions at the March 19-21, 2013 International Confex show at Excel.

The content is expected to be similar to the offerings at the PCMA's inaugural Global Corporate Summit, which included senior speakers from Nike, McDonald’s, Microsoft and Cisco.

Sherrif Karamat, chief operating officer of PCMA, said: "The UK is an important market for our association and, following the success of the Global Corporate Summit in Scotland last month, it’s clear there is a desire and need for PCMA’s tools, resources and education in the UK. International Confex is the perfect forum for us to engage with this important audience."

"We are delighted to announce this special strategic relationship. PCMA has an outstanding reputation for the quality of education they provide for senior meeting and event planners, and we're thrilled to be bringing their content to our show and attendees," said James Samuel, event manager, International Confex.

"This is great news for both our corporate and association buyers who look to International Confex for the very best education they can get, while having the opportunity to meet and network with top products and services on the exhibition floor."
