All speeches will be simultaneously translated into Russian.

Let’s navigate together towards compliance!

Day 2: ConverStations – Experience-sharing round tables

Facilitated by no-one less than Peter Woodward – world class facilitator who will make sure we all go home full of new information shared with the others in the room.

We will take a close look at different topics and share practical experience in addressing some of the main challenges on the way towards regulatory compliance.

This is what makes PCMC more than just a regular conference.

ConverStations bring together representatives of industry, regulators, policy-makers and enforcement authorities as well as expert consultants who can all share their views and real-life experience in face-to-face discussions.

  • Procurement, purchasing, sourcing

Why to exhibit at PCMC?

  • Your stand will be right where all participants will be – in the buffet/coffee area. PCMC is on a boat, so you will be in close contact with potential new customers.
  • We want to select featured partners carefully to make sure there aren’t 10 companies doing the same thing – we want to present complementary products and services to the participants, so the showroom will not be full of your direct competitors.
  • Your promotional materials will be placed right next to the bar and we will also send them to the participants after the conference together with presentations.
  • You will also get ad space in the slideshow on 3 screens during the breaks.
  • Last year we had participants from more than 10 different countries
  • As an exhibitor you will get 2 conference passes so you can follow the discussions at the conference while your colleague is at your stand
