ISPI EMEA Conferences are purposefully intimate in size (limited to 100 participants) with a format, content and presenters designed to attract executives and professionals from diverse backgrounds and experience that bring with them an enthusiasm for learning, sharing and growing together in the highly participative atmosphere of the Conference.

Only you can contribute your unique perspective!  At ISPI EMEA, we believe that a conference is more than its programs and presenters.  Our Conference participants are every bit as much a part of the total learning experience, as our fabulous presenters.  Our Conferences are compelling because of their innovative, active/interactive format. ISPI EMEA Conferences consistently attract participants who are highly-skilled, experienced, and eager to learn and share.
