EuroPCom 2018: 9th European Public Communication Conference  
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

 
The 9th edition of EuroPCom will take place on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 November 2018. With the 2019 European Parliament elections ahead and distrust in the EU still dominating national discourse and elections in the Member States, fostering democratic engagement and advocating for the European project seem to be decisive elements in 2018 for ensuring the future of the EU. This edition of EuroPCom will therefore have the title "Campaigning for Europe" and will provide a unique connecting platform in preparation for the election year ahead.
 
This year's conference sessions follow three main thematic clusters:
 
 
More than 900 communication professionals are expected to attend the event.​ Join your colleagues from all the EU Member States and beyond in sharing views at this largest event on public communication in Europe!
