looking forward to seeing you online
on 8 and 9 November!
EuroPCom 2021 will run as a fully digital event from 10:00 on Monday 8 November until 14:00 on Tuesday 9 November. Under the headline “Changing communication - Communicating change", this year's edition will focus on three main themes: Democracy, Green Deal and Digitalisation, which will include the discussion themes suggested by the applicants.
The event will have a strong interactive element, offering opportunities for attendants to participate actively during the EuroPCom Talks, the workshop Q&As and the Ideas Labs. The Virtual Market Place, which will be open throughout the event and during the breaks, will also provide various networking opportunities.
The call for applications for EuroPCom 2021 has been very successful and we thank all the applicants. We have received:
- 120 proposals for workshops and speakers;
- 32 applications for Ideas Labs; and
- 34 applications for the Market Place
from the partner EU institutions as well as Regional offices, associations, consultancies, communication agencies, academia and private persons.
While our teams are currently concentrating their efforts on the development of the digital platform, the website and the web app, and on the structure and content of the sessions, we can already highlight that during the Opening Session a panel of speakers will look at how the COVID 19 has changed the way we communicate, both externally and internally, and what we can expect for the future.
EuroPCom, the European Public Communication Conference, is an annual conference and networking event for communication experts from local, regional, national and European authorities, as well as private communication agencies, NGOs and academia. Since its launch in 2009, EuroPCom has featured high-level speakers from the world of public communication, workshops, participatory ideas labs and training sessions, plus a EuroPCom Market Place for participants to network and engage with exhibitors.
The event is organised by the European Committee of the Regions in partnership with the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament, the European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Investment Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Each year, a call for proposals is launched to offer the EuroPCom community an opportunity to submit their ideas for interesting workshop topics and speakers, as well as a call for ideas labs organisers and exhibitors to submit their applications to be part of the conference.
