Take advantage of our early bird promotion FROM ApRIL 1st!





This year the PMI Norway Chapter annual conference will be an international event and a meeting place for project, programme and portfolio managers from the Nordic and European regions as well as for our sponsors and partner organisations world-wide. We welcome delegates from our international sister PMI Chapters, professional project practitioners, project owners and anyone interested in the conference theme.

This year's conference theme:

"Adapt or Die? Transforming Project Management to Embrace the Challenges of Tomorrow” 

- focuses on how projects in the future must mirror changing business trends and adapt in scope, domain, content and schedule to an ever faster changing world.

The date is Monday September 25th, 9 AM – 5 PM (10 PM*), the conference venue will be at Radisson Plaza Hotel in central Oslo where a conference dinner in the evening is included.

* The program finishes at 5 PM, after which we take a one-hour break to stretch our legs, respond to any urgent emails or calls, or simply catch up with new and old Project Management friends. We recommence at 18:00 with a welcome drink, followed by dinner.

Early Bird registration is open until 15 May 2017. Regular registration is open between May 15 and September 25.
