EuroPCom, the European Conference on Public Communication, is the meeting point for communication managers and senior experts from local, regional, national and European authorities. 

The seventh edition of EuroPCom will be held in Brussels on 20th and 21st October 2016. Over a dynamic two-day programme, communication managers and senior experts from local, regional and European authorities will discuss major challenges in both EU and public communication. 

Join your colleagues from all EU Member States and beyond in sharing views on the changing context in which the EU communication is taking place, and about Europe as a continuing source of inspiration.

As an extra networking opportunity this year, EuroPCom will open "ideas labs" for interested participants to find partners for their projects or share experience on issues of common interest. Check out the EuroPCom 2016 Ideas labs - call for proposals for more information.  

Updates on speakers and practical information will be provided.
