On 13-14th May 2020 we will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of this very unique event and as such, would like to offer you a 25% discount as a super-early bird offer.
The programe is still in my head .
Expect fresh looks at old ideas and first looks at things you don't know about.
Uppermost for me is still the creation of a distinct project controls community, but a refreshed reimagined one that is proactive and truly influential.
A community that can support societal changes and challenges.
Assist Sustainability and Circular Economies in the Cities of the Future.
Cities which require able citizens aged 7-70+
Citzens for who Fusion skills. The 'soft skills' which really get things done are second nature.
There are clear signals that arts, culture, science, engineering, education, sport, and leisure all need to be joined up like they were for centuries.
And that populations and politicians want environments that cater for the many. That future wellbeing and prosperity should be for all. I am certain many in our community support and aspire to that.
EVA is probably the only event where difference is not an issue. Where which Body of Knowledge or Method will force you in or out.
As ever, EVA24 will be different, entertaining and informative. Dinner will be served in the beautiful,wood panelled Hall by candlelight.
Additionally, a pre-conference dinner will be available. Last year 40 very senior project controls people came together for a drinks reception and networking dinner held at the Dorchester. It was a roaring success. And again a real expression of the Controls community. A room full of decision makers working on the major projects of the day.
Attendees are middle to very senior professionals with interests in project management generally, project controls, earned value, wanting to learn more about wider issues of transformation, successful change and benefits-driven portfolios. These people realise that the world is changing rapidly and they have to change with it if they are to thrive and survive.
They will also be very keen to keep Project Controls set onto a formal career path this year and are looking for like minds who will lobby for and champion this, as well as networking and business leads.
Government, Defence, Aerospace, Construction, Utilities, Transport, Power Generation, Pharmaceutical and IT sectors are represented.
All EVA conferences are filmed for web broadcast by the PM Channel as well as support from the trade press and social media.
Sponsors will each be allocated a clear space, power supply and either a table or stand space on the networking area where delegates gather between sessions in the pre-conference, mid morning, lunch and afternoon breaks and during the break out sessions.
Main and Gold sponsors may erect suitable stands. Sponsors will be able to distribute brochures to all delegates. Erection of stands will be early morning on the day of the event or previous day by arrangement.
Every sponsor’s logo will appear on all marketing and event documentation produced by the organisers.
