Posted by Kirsten on 21st Feb 2017

Those wishing to attend this year’s APM Project Management Conference have less than one week to book their tickets at the early bird rate – saving up to £190 of the standard ticket price. 

Following the announcement in January that APM has been awarded a Royal Charter on behalf of the project management profession, the APM Conference will mark the first national event of the brand new Chartered body. As well as a broad range of inspiring and ground-breaking speakers, the conference will offer the first chance to see the new APM Chartered branding, talk to APM about its future plans and offer the opportunity to network with the leaders of the profession at a celebration reception immediately after the conference.

Why not join us for this historic event to learn about the future of your profession and your professional body?

The 2017 Project Management Conference, which is to be held at London’s Barbican Centre, one of Europe’s largest performing arts centres, on Thursday 27 April, is an award-winning event sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight and has a long-held reputation for bringing together the world’s most influential and thought-provoking speakers from the project profession. 

The Conference, entitled Making the Mould, will leave no assumption unchallenged, providing an insight into the future of our profession; the people, the practices and the projects and how they will transform the world we live in and the way we work.

Sue Kershaw, APM board member and conference chair explains, “Our APM conference, Making the Mould: transform, diversify, revolutionise is all about creating the project management of the future, and is a showcase of how our profession is raising the bar to meet the challenges of economic regeneration, climate change, security, technology, innovation and globalisation. This will influence how we can best manage complexity in a rapidly changing environment.”

Delegates will hear from a wide range of professionals from a multitude of sectors enabling attendees to leave with insights from across industry and the latest skills direct from peers.
