EphMRA Conference 2020 update

It’s time to update you on our plans for the 2020 Conference in Antwerp. 

Over the past few weeks the Executive Board has been monitoring the global situation and looking at travel restrictions and the impact of the pandemic on our members and speakers.  The outlook for June is uncertain and so the Board has decided to move our 2020 Conference forward to June 2021.  This means that there will be no conference in 2020 but we will hold it in Antwerp in June 2021.  Letting you know at this point in time means that you can plan your commitments and workloads over the next few months and in addition taking this decision now minimises the financial impact on the Association of paying venue cancellation fees.
The Board discussed whether it was feasible to move the conference a date later in 2020 but the date options available from the venue were not ideal and it is anticipated that in Q4 this year many member companies will be extremely busy and time to attend our conference might be difficult to find.
To make sure we keep well connected with our members we have recently launched our programme of weekly webinars to bring up to date content to our members and continue your learning and development.  Watch out for the enhancements we will be making to this programme and how we will be adding great webinar topics and speakers.

Finally, if your company has already booked and paid for a 2020 conference place/exhibition space then we will be in touch shortly to discuss the options with you (refund or transfer monies paid to 2021 thus securing your 2021 place at 2020 prices).

Any questions please do get back to me - always happy to help.

Best wishes and stay safe 
Bernadette Rogers, General Manager

Further information about the EphMRA 2021 conference

The conference will take place at Flanders Meeting & Convention Center, Koningin Astridplein 15-17 2021 Antwerp, Belgium and is within a stone’s throw of the famous Antwerp Central Station, with many hotels close by to fit all budgets.

We will be providing comprehensive information about how to travel to the venue from Brussels airport, which is the closest international airport to Antwerp.  There are numerous trains to Antwerp from Amsterdam, so if you wish to take the train, this is a cost effective and environmentally friendly option to reach the conference.

Throughout the conference there will be ample opportunity to network with colleagues during the welcome drinks, the evening event and during coffee and lunch breaks, so you will meet lots of new people as well as catch up with old friends and colleagues.

Why not take a look at what some of our delegates thought about our 2019 annual conference in Warsaw.

Hear from members of our Programme Steering Committee

I love coming to the yearly EphMRA conference. Such a great opportunity to network, share experiences and to learn from each other on subjects that are key to our industry both now and in the future - anything from Digital, BE, RWD, AL & ML through to GDPR. Also, it's great meeting up with friends old and new and having some time away from the office to truly reflect on how these learnings can be applied to my working role.

It is so important to stand back and think about what we are doing and the opportunities to do it better.  The EphMRA conference is a great opportunity to challenge yourself and learn from research colleagues - as well as being a lot of fun.
