EduCon offers an invaluable attendee experience, but don’t just take our word for it. Hear directly from past attendees.

Over the years that I have not only attended by actively participated at the PCMA-EduCon, I have learned, grown and felt immediate enrichment in my professional as well as personal life. EduCon affords a unique way to learn in a different mode that allows you to toss away the Gen this and X that categories and explore in “personas”. EduCon causes me to pull out my thoughts and ways of interacting and examine them to give either a yes, I will continue down this road or someone share a new way that I should consider. In the synergistic aura that permeates this intimate meeting, I feel free to explore, challenge and learn with no judgements or “wrong methods”. The meeting of the minds, the growing of thoughts and openness to new ideas is what I so look forward to at every EduCon meeting…and I have yet to be disappointed.”

I have attended the PCMA Educon June meeting for many years. Every year the content and learnings exceed those from previous years. The other reason I enjoy attending this conference is because of the intimate size of the event. It provides me with great face to face time with industry colleagues and networking opportunities. Attending is a must in my opinion! I hope to see you in LA!”

Heidi Welker, Senior Vice President Business Development & Industry Partnerships, Freeman Audio Visual Canada

I joined PCMA in the early 90’s and have made an effort to attend Convening Leaders and the Education Conference ever since. Over the years I’ve actually come to enjoy EduCon more than CL because it is somewhat more intimate and consequently navigating the education, networking and still handling my responsibilities with my clients is less daunting. EduCon provides focused sessions that help me with my relationships with colleagues, clients and suppliers and offers me the opportunity to engage more actively in the sessions I attend.”

Annette Suriani, CMP Chief Marketing Strategist AMS Meetings Solutions

PCMA EduCon is one of my most favorite education and networking events- and I am personally excited to see what Los Angeles has in store for us! The size and intimacy of PCMA EduCon has resulted in deeper connections, and the ability to engage and learn in a comfortable environment. Some of my biggest business opportunities have resulted by my attendance at this annual conference. I highly recommend the investment!”

Susan Euritt, Principal, Ruckus Strategic Partnership Consulting, LLC

Every year I look forward to attending EduCon because of the education and personal connections I make there. It’s a smaller group so it’s more intimate and it’s easier to have meaningful one-on-one conversations. The experiential learning sessions are interesting and a great way to get out of the traditional meeting rooms to learn something new.”

Rebecca Ramsey, Regional Director of Sales, Midwest VisitBaltimore

Attending PCMA EduCon is a must-do for any planner or supplier in our industry. I love the size of the meeting because I am able to see old friends and network within smaller groups to make new connections. The education sessions are new & fresh and tend to cover topics that other conferences are not. I returned to my office with a list of innovative ideas that I wanted to implement.”

Lauren Chelf, Director, Meetings & Expositions, AOAC International

My team calls PCMA Educon our ‘little secret’, and not sure that we want everyone to know how inspiring it is. We love the smaller format and rich learning and connections that flows from that. Don’t tell anyone.”

Claire Smith CMP, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Vancouver Convention Centre

The PCMA EduCon Conference should not be missed. In addition to the extraordinary networking opportunities available to all attendees, the conference content is top notch. The sessions offer something for everyone and you always take home a nugget or two to take back to your team. Plus, I love the size of this event, you get a chance to connect with everyone.”
