The Professional Convention Management Association will launch its inaugural PCMA Global Medical Meetings Summit July 17-20 at ExCeL London convention center.

The summit is an invitation-only event for senior medical meeting professionals and medical association CEOs.

“PCMA was founded as a medical meetings organization,” said Deborah Sexton, president and CEO, PCMA.

She added, “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 possible solutions that would position organizations for success.”

Magnus Lindkvist, trendspotter and futurist with an expertise in healthcare, will be the summit opening keynote speaker, engaging the participants with a forecast of what life, society and business might look like in the future.

In addition, areas of discussion will include revenue streams, sponsorships and future funding, effects of governmental regulations, CMEs and the strategic role medical meeting executives can play in organizational success.

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

“We are delighted to be working with PCMA to host and facilitate such an important Summit which will help to define a future vision for international medical meetings,” said David Pegler, CEO, ExCeL London.

He added, “London has a track record in successfully hosting such meetings and it naturally makes sense for our city to host this high profile event. A Summit such as this is vital for the future development of the industry and how medical meetings evolve to meet the economic and regulatory challenges they face. We look forward to working with PCMA to create the perfect environment for this senior delegation and we know London will deliver on this promise.”
