Thank you for helping make EuroPCom 2020 such a success!
EuroPCom 2021: looking forward to seeing you online on 8 and 9 November !
EuroPCom 2021 will be a fully digital event and will run from Monday 8 November 2021 at 10.00 am until Tuesday 9 November at 02.00 pm. 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.
The EuroPCom 2021 website is currently under construction and will be released shortly after the summer break.

The EuroPCom Market Place (marketplace.europa.eu) was the venue for participants to chat and arrange meetings with other participants, as well as visit online "stalls" from a wide range of governmental, non-governmental and private-sector organisations. Participants could view the exhibitors' materials and videos, chat with them and arrange one-to-one video meetings, as well as attend live presentations about the work of the exhibitors.
