The largest annual meeting point for experts in the field of public communication
EuroPCom 2021: 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 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, as well as the structure and content of the sessions, we can already highlight that during the Opening Session a panel of speakers will look at how COVID-19 has changed the way we communicate, both externally and internally, and what we can expect for the future.

The EuroPCom marketplace is where participants can visit online "stands" from a wide range of governmental, non-governmental and private-sector organisations. Participants can view the exhibitors' materials and videos, as well as chat and arrange meetings with them. This year, the EuroPCom marketplace is an integral part of the EuroPCom digital platform.
