ABPM conferences are excellent professional development venues. And with so many ideas being shared, so much creativity being generated, and so many connections being made, attendees will inevitably leave energized and ready to implement new initiatives that will take their programs to the next level. Maximum attendance for this event is 60 people and past in-person conferences sold out so register early! Due to smaller conference capacity, registration is limited to two Supplier Members per company. Briefing professionals will take registration priority.
