Why Attend


Spending time with your PMO peers is always valuable. Spending that time in an environment tailored to the challenges and opportunities you don’t only face today, but tomorrow; will enable both your personal development and the development of your PMO.

Have Fun

The future PMO isn’t your average project management or PMO conference. We want you to have fun. Not only will we have the DeLorean from Back to the Future and Titan the Robot there, but there will also be other surprises on the day to enhance your experience.


Delegates can focus on their PMO; current and future, thanks to technology enhancements that are forecast, and the capabilities and scope of PMOs. Delegates will return to the workplace, not just empowered and passionate about their journey, but loaded with solutions.

Get Inspired

From our highly motivational speakers and interactive workshops, you can tailor your day to focus where you need to. The format of this day will leave you feeling educated and inspired to go back and make a change to your PMO for the better.
