The EVMP Training & Symposium is now in it’s sixth year, and by the reviews of last year, this really is an event that should be in everyone’s calendars. 90% of the surveys returned after last year’s event rated it outstanding or excellent. The fresh format of EVMP differs from the normal conference format for project management delegates, and if last year is an example as to what we can expect, there is a real buzz about this year’s event.
This popular event will take place over two days, on July 27, 2016 – July 28, 2016 (Wednesday-Thursday), at the purpose built, state-of-the-art American Management Association Conference Center.
