Málaga (Spain), 10 – 11 July 2019

It is a traditional conference with a modern outlook. 
Tom Taylor (ISoPM 2019)

"As may be expected the 23rd International Congress on Project Management and Engineering annual conference in Spain is a well-established, well-attended event and meeting of minds.
The Project Management element has been refocussed in the last three years to be an intensive, diverse, international, English speaking gathering covering all aspects of projects and project management over two full days.
The event is going from strength to strength with key note speakers, lectures and talks. There are panel discussions on current and conventional topics – with twists; and with experienced experts and new, young participants both on the stage and in the audience.
There are posters and refreshments to consume.  Certainly there are networking opportunities with colleagues, friends and strangers. This year in 2019 the conference is in sunny Malaga, in south of Spain in July; following previously in historic Cadiz and hot Madrid.  See you there?"
