I’ll hear from popular business events leaders and enjoy workshops designed to address some of the industry’s challenges, like finding revenue streams from business events in our current environment and beyond. [Explain how one session or activity is particularly relevant to your role or organization.]

I’ll also have the chance to connect with industry influencers and cultivate key business relationships that will benefit [workplace] now and in the future.

Check out EduCon’s website at, @PCMAHQ on Twitter, or PCMA on LinkedIn to find out more about how my attendance at EduCon could change [workplace] for the better.
