Programme for the next EARMA Digital Conference announced

We are very pleased to share with you the programme for the next EARMA Digital Conference. Join us for five days of learning, networking and, of course, fun with our RMA community from April 14-20, 2021.

This EARMA Digital Conference will be much bigger and much better than last year with two parallel rooms hosting almost 100 sessions in total. Keynotes on Horizon Europe and a panel session on Widening Participation will open the conference.

This virtual gathering is going to be our most interactive and diverse digital event to date with sessions ranging from high-level strategy and policy to the nuts and bolts of operational work. As with our other EARMA conferences, this event is by RMAs for RMAs.

Please note that you can currently register to attend this event via the EARMA Digital package. Single registration will open February 8.

Quite often in this still relatively new online space, we stick to the business of the day and forget that we need to work and play. So, there will be fun events in the evening including a quiz, comedy and chatting with colleagues over your preferred beverage.

Maria Maunula, Chair of the EARMA Annual Conference Programme Committee (ACPC), said, “We have aimed to incorporate the best elements from a physical conference but with the added value that digital can bring – the best of both worlds.”

“For example, the Pecha Kucha slots will be followed by small break-out rooms for those wanting a more in-depth conversation with the presenters. Also, lunch and evening sessions allow for getting together with old and new colleagues and friends. Importantly, the content will be available to view afterwards for those registered and to EARMA Digital subscribers.”

Simon Kerridge, Deputy-Chair of the EARMA Annual Conference Programme Committee (ACPC), said, “This year the posters can be enhanced with a short video presentation rather than just a static poster.  You can visit them anytime but keen presenters will be there to answer your questions in a live chat during the lunch breaks.  Don’t forget to vote for your favourite poster!”

Our Annual Conference Programme Committee have been working tirelessly to achieve what will no doubt be a successful and enjoyable event in April. We would like to say a massive thank you to all involved for their commitment and effort to keep our RMA community connected.
