PM Fair 2017

Project Manager Compass

Mark your calendars for the Project Management event of the year – the PM Fair 2017 that will take place on Friday, 6 October 2017.

The PM Fair is a very special event for the Project Management Community in Belgium where we make your learning experience fun; an event that will encourage you to enhance your professional knowledge and skills by providing you the latest tools, techniques and trends that are essential for your success.

The objective of the PM Fair is to help you develop and expand the compass of your project management skills each year. With this in mind, the theme we have chosen for PM Fair 2017 is The Project Manager Compass.

The Project Manager Compass is based on the Project Manager Competence Development Framework and is aligned with the PMI talent triangle. The especially designed tracks of the PM compass will assist you to orientate yourself towards your personal development goals, and to navigate in the direction that best fits your chosen path and targets.

About the PM Fair

The PMI Belgium Chapter has a long standing tradition of organizing an Annual Congress, now known as the PM Fair, in the beginning of October each year.
The conventional congress landscape dotting the professional calendar with events filled with the traditional content and structure is slowly giving way to new and innovative approach. PMI Belgium has been a front runner in challenging the traditional format and giving to the project management professionals an event that is not only professionally rewarding but also an invigorating experience filled with fun while delivering on the core professional content.

In 2015, PMI Belgium took the first step to innovate by introducing the “Market Place” concept in the form of the “PM Fair”. In 2016, the focus was turned to not just delivering value but to delight the customer as well as to be a delighted project management professional by addressing the aspects related to the personal well-being.

This year, the PM Fair 2017 continues in the path of “the delighted” by providing the project management professionals a compass that guides them or navigates them towards being delighted and overall well-being that ultimately leads to higher personal and as well as customer satisfaction. The theme of the PM Fair 2017 therefore is aptly “The Project Manager Compass” or in short “The PM Compass”, where the congress will provide the necessary inputs, tools, techniques, tips, networking, health and well-being aspects etc., all bundled as a virtual compass that can steer their projects, teams and themselves to a grand success.

The congress is aimed at delivering key values by providing ample opportunity for professional interaction, networking and knowledge sharing in a relaxed environment. A central area will be provided that will allow sponsors/authors to demonstrate their products or services to a targeted group of professionals.

Building on the innovative ideas, the objective is to deliver PM Fair as a congress that is THE Project Management event of the year, and an event that everyone looks forward to attending each year.
