The Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) is to return to Texas for its Convening Leaders 2021.
Having held the 2017 event in Austin, the association goes to the United States’ fourth-largest city, Houston, 10-13 January.
The event continues to grow and now attracts 4,200 global professionals over three days for senior-level education, community building and orchestrated networking.
The event continues to grow in attendance, year-over-year, attracting the best and brightest in the industry.
Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Centre (GRB), ranks among the 10 largest convention centres in the United States, and will host Convening Leaders 2021.
“Houston is honoured and thrilled to be hosting PCMA’s Convening Leaders conference in 2021,” said Mike Waterman, executive vice-president of Houston First Corporation and president of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau. “It has been an epic year for Houston, starting with hosting Super Bowl 51, to working with PCMA and our state partners to defeat the so-called ‘Texas bathroom Bill’ and most recently dealing with the impacts of Hurricane Harvey. All of these events have made Houston stronger and better prepared moving forward. We look forward to welcoming PCMA to the new and improved Houston in 2021.”
“As PCMA continues to expand our global reach, the international hub of Houston is a perfect destination to welcome our diverse Convening Leaders audience,” said Deborah Sexton, PCMA president and CEO. “The Houston hospitality community has a passionate entrepreneurial spirit, a commitment to success and, as we have all recently witnessed, a resilient can-do attitude that ensures the Convening Leaders possibilities will be limitless.”
PCMA 2018 Convening Leaders will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, at the acclaimed Music City Centre. Registration is now open at conveningleaders.org Pittsburgh and San Francisco, meanwhile, were earlier this year confirmed as host cities for the 2019 and 2020 Convening Leaders, respectively.
