One of the event industry’s biggest gatherings is about to happen, and we can’t wait to meet you there. PCMA Convening Leaders is a multi-day flagship education and networking event that takes place annually each January. The 2023 edition will take place from January 8 to 11.

The purpose of the event is to help brands, communities, and organizations connect people with ideas and opportunities. PCMA Convening Leaders offers leading-edge education, research, and networking, as well as information on how business events generate economic and social legacies for businesses and communities. If you’re in the events industry, this is one not be missed.

Montréal is in the house

Team Montréal – a coalition of Montréal’s event industry stakeholders – will be onsite to talk about the various opportunities that Montréal holds for meetings and events. We’ll have a booth in the exhibition area. But we’re also planning some top-secret surprises. Hint: you’ll find a little Montréal flair where you least expect it.
