FAQs

Will I have time for networking?

Getting in a room with your peers is invaluable so we encourage it through industry to industry contact at key points during the day. That way, you can easily find people with similar interests or journey to you. We are even ending all the plenary activity just after 4pm so you can get home or (our preferred option) stay around and network with your new PMO friends some more.

What if I want to attend 3 sessions at the same time?

If you are a super hero and that is your super power then go right ahead! However, the slides will be shared after the fact so that you can enjoy the content you couldn’t get on the day at your leisure.

I saw your video, what if I don’t want to be in the one for this year?

If you are adverse to photos or videos that’s fine. Please let us know in advance and we can make arrangements for the day.

What if I have dietary requirements?

We do choose the menus to ensure as much diversity in ingredients as possible. Please ensure you tell us upon purchasing your ticket by responding to the confirmation email and we can make arrangements for the day.

I came last year, will you be giving away the same gifts?

We will be giving away some collateral on the day – however it’s all under wraps until the day so you will have to wait!

Who runs FuturePMO?

FuturePMO has been created by Wellingtone. We are a leading PPM consultancy, working with clients across the UK. We are a commercial organisation but we do not run FuturePMO to make a profit. Ticket revenue does help cover costs but Wellingtone makes a significant contributions to ensure our policy commitments of ‘Keeping the ticket price low and making the “wow” factor high!’

How easy is the venue to get to?

Really easy, that’s why we picked it! It’s just a 3-minute walk from Hammersmith Underground Station and less than 20-minutes travel from Central London or Heathrow. The hotel has loads of on-site parking too at £3.50 per hour for non-residents (We did ask if that included a full wash & wax, but apparently not)

Why is FuturePMO subject to tiered pricing this year?

We want FuturePMO to be a good deal for all our delegates. This pricing structure allows us to be transparent with you, as well help you speak to your organisation about approving the purchase. The earlier they commit, they better the price! As always though, if you are buying a ‘bulk’ of tickets, you can contact us directly for a better group discount price on the full price tickets.

Can my organisation exhibit at FuturePMO?

No. We are proud that FuturePMO is a no sales event. Wellingtone invite close partners to join the fun and get a chance to meet and speak to PMO Practitioners, but we don’t sell space or speaking slots. Even our speakers are briefed up front which ensures that the day is focused on PMO and getting as many Practitioners in the same room!

85% of organisations have a PMO, however only 52% of these have a PMO strategy.
