PMI Belgium Annual Congress

PM Fair 2019


This year's theme is...

Project Management and Digital Disruption: Are you ready?

Project management professionals that will succeed in this age of disruption will have the right mindset; they will adapt rapidly to the opportunities and challenges brought about by new and rapidly evolving technology, with a powerful impact and global reach.
The 2019 PM Fair challenges our participants, ‘Are you ready?’ and the aim of the program is to challenge thinking, broaden horizons and put the wheels in motion to create ‘Project Managers of the future’.

The main theme will be addressed from three different, but equally important, perspectives, represented by three different tracks throughout the congress. The following outlines the perspective for each track, to provide inspiration for potential speakers in providing their abstract:

About 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 event will be set up like a Fair and will offer a fertile ground for professional interaction, networking and knowledge sharing. It will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, values and best practices with professionals from different industries/organizations in an informal environment. It will encourage active participation in various PM roles at special booths. It will also allow sponsors/authors to demonstrate their products or services to a targeted group of professionals. In nutshell, it will be a very special, very dynamic and a very friendly “Market” of Project Management.

As Project Management is not limited to any particular business segment or industry, we want to broaden our horizon with this concept to welcome practitioners, academicians, speakers, writers, lecturers, recruiters as well as sponsors from different organizations, industries, professions, universities, etc.
The Market Place consists of making our event a big fair. At the same place, it groups the sponsors, speakers, the persons who are looking for a job and the persons who can share some opportunities. The Market Place must be the central point of our event, the whole day, we must organize animations, entertainment, content, networking. The purpose is to have people the all day long and not just during coffee breaks or lunch. It’s the place to be.

The objective of the PM Fair is to make visible the PMI Belgium Chapter during one full day. The PM Fair must be the reference in the world of the project management in Belgium.

The objective is to regroup the professionals active in project/program/portfolio management in one place where they can share their experience with the others.

At the end of the day, it’s important that each attendee has learnt something, still convinces in his choice of career and still be motivated by the project management. Everybody must be happy at the end of the day and has just one idea: to attend the event of next year.

You can earn 7 PDUs (Professional Development Units) by attending PM Fair 2019.

Applicable to attendees who hold one of the PMI certificates before attending the conference.

Inspiration Hall

As the talks in the main hall are ongoing, the Inspiration Hall will be opened for business with complementary content. It is hard to capture the idea of the Inspiration Hall, but we have tried in the following paragraph:

The inspiration hall is not a common marketplace.
It is the place to encounter new ideas.

The inspiration hall is not just a collection of informative stands.
It offers the opportunity to engage in new concepts.

The Inspiration Hall doesn’t follow a script.
It is meant for the adventurous, the curious and the rebels,
Seeking new skills and surprising practices.

It is a ship sailing for new shores in search of the one thing:
A new and better version of you

For PMI Belgium, the concept of the Inspiration Hall is key to its identity. The members of PMI Belgium and the attendees of the PM Fair are very much 21st century minded professionals, where critical thinking, creativity and collaboration are important values. Therefore, to cater for these adventurous, curious and even rebellious attendees of the PM Fair, we have a place for them where they can make their own way through all the content available. Every visitor of the Inspiration Hall will travel an individual journey collecting the specific value they are looking for.
