APMP To Launch New Conference to Serve the European Business Winning Community

After two years of planning, APMP announced that it is starting a new conference under the Bid & Proposal Con (BPC) brand for Europe on March 5-6, 2020.  The announcement was made at the 15th Anniversary of APMP Netherlands and Interdisciplinary Conference today.  The new conference will be called BPC Europe 2020.

The inaugural BPC Europe will provide attendees with two full days of exceptional professional development, certification and industry education for the bid, proposal, tender, capture, sales and business development communities.   The goal is to give BPC Europe attendees tools to help them do their jobs more efficiently and begin thinking about their leadership, personal and professional development skills.

“As APMP continues to grow in Europe and deliver its certification programs through an expanding network of European chapters, BPC Europe is coming sharply into focus,” said Ginny Carson, Chair of APMP.  “This conference will benefit the fast-growing European market and address an important goal cited in APMP’s 2019-2021 Strategic Plan: to focus on international expansion. We want to bring the full suite of APMP benefits to all of our members, no matter their geography,” she said.

BPC Europe will explore and reveal the latest professional development trends and techniques to help attendees better understand what it takes to win.  BPC Europe will offer a full range of panel discussions, leadership workshops, and lectures.  It will also provide friendly and informative networking opportunities so fellow business development lifecycle professionals may connect, share and learn from each other

Its four educational focus areas are:

  1. Professional Development
  2. Leadership
  3. Certification
  4. Innovation

“APMP’s collective insight, experience, and a network of nearly 3,000 European bid and proposal professionals are why we are launching BPC Europe,” said Rick Harris, CEO of APMP. “This depth and breadth give our association the power and the honor of delivering relevant and rich education for immediate use. APMP is not a single individual or a single company – it represents an industry and all of the members in it. Attendees will see that collective power at BPC Europe 2020,” he said.
