Project Management Institute (PMI), the world's leading membership association for the project management profession, will convene in Amsterdam, Netherlands at the PMI Global Congress 2009-EMEA (Europe-Middle East-Africa) on 18-20 May. The three-day professional event will be held at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, and it will offer opportunities for project management practitioners, students and executives to learn about worldwide trends and the value project management offers to organisations everyday.
"It is clear that everyone's mind is on the economy and how to navigate through it," said Gregory Balestrero, president and chief executive officer of PMI. "By attending congress, project practitioners at every level have the opportunity to sharpen their skills so they demonstrate the most value for their employers."
PMI Global Congress 2009-EMEA is the premier project management, educational and networking event in the Europe-Middle-East-Africa region. Project managers learn new techniques, tools and best practices, gaining a glocal-both global and local-perspective of their profession.
The congress offers attendees more than 75 areas of focus to meet a variety of career development paths. Some of this year's areas of focus include advanced project management skills, communications, consulting skills, research, general business skills, industry specific issues, new project management trends, professional development, project management foundation skills, project management issues, sales and marketing skills and teaming. In a proactive response to regional needs, Project Management Institute will work with the PMI Netherlands Chapter to host an executive breakfast, a project management student event and a think tank seminar. These events will take place in conjunction with PMI Global Congress 2009-EMEA proceedings.
