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
