IPMA Global Project Profession Forum
Celebrating the success of the IPMA Global Project Profession Forum in Seville, Spain
IPMA Global Project Profession Forum was hosted in Seville, Spain, on Sep. 21-22, 2023, and it was the first event of a kind, replacing the famous IPMA World Congress this year. In the Forum, we adjusted the format to meet the needs of businesses: PMOs, C-suite executives, and global organizations, providing a platform for networking and exchange.
Almost 250 participants from 50 countries had a chance to attend 9 panels and 3 workshops featuring 34 keynote speakers during the 2-days Forum program. Besides the official Forum program, IPMA officers hosted 34 internal side meetings of the international IPMA project teams in parallel.
The connections begin at the meeting rooms, but the real networking takes place at the social events. We organized a project site visit in the Port of Seville, the only inland maritime port in Spain and the sole commercial river port in the country, and also a guided sightseeing tour for our Awards Finalists in the beautiful city of Seville. We had a Welcome Cocktail party in Seville on Day 1, and a marvelous IPMA Global Awards Gala and Forum Closing dinner with horse and flamenco shows on Day 2. During the Awards Gala, 21 finalists from 12 countries received their recognition in 8 different IPMA Global Awards categories.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Partners – Planisware,Itecor, and Van Haren Publishing, as well as the speakers and volunteers who contributed their time and resources to make this event possible. Your support is invaluable to the IPMA community.
We would like to thank the Forum Guests for their active participation and positive energy at the event. We hope each of you found some valuable takeaways for you and your businesses and we look forward to welcoming you at the future IPMA events.
As a side note, we would like to extend a special thanks to our amazing Forum photographer Guillermo Mendo Murillo for his professionalism and wonderful attitude.
