Conference Agenda


SeminarsWorld® offers hands-on, intensive courses for small groups who want to gain a deep understanding of a single topic. SeminarsWorld® courses have much to offer on their own, but they also complement the sessions at PMI® Global Conference, and if you register for both events together, it’ll cost you less than if you register separately.
