People go to events for two reasons: To gain top-notch education and to make first-rate connections. That’s why PYM LIVE Events are organized to maximize your professional development and networking time.
In three short hours, we’ll connect you with meeting industry leaders who can answer your burning questions, peers who can mentor you and meeting suppliers who can make your life easier.
We can help you organize a remote viewing group of 10 or more and create a virtual geo-fence around your location so you and your “pod” can participate with our in-person audience and educational content, no matter where you’re located. And if you tag your tweets and images with #yaypym you can join our real-time conversation on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Throughout the year, I invite you to continue sharing your ideas, images and stories with us here as well as in our LinkedIn and G+ communities.
Prior to attending, be sure to download the free Topi app for your mobile device by following the links below. That will allow you to access our digital show guide, speaker and exhibitor info and introduce you to the most intelligently designed way we’ve seen to help attendees network with each other onsite. (Plus, you’ll be able to access the magic of augmented reality from the app itself and see how that technology can enhance your events.)

Attending any PYM educational session earns you continuing education units toward achieving or renewing the CMP, CSEP, CPS, CAP, CAP-OM and/or CAE designations. You’ll also receive a very special takeaway gift – a thumb drive filled with all-new industry best practices and advice articles.
At every event in 2013, we’ll be collecting unused soaps and donations for Clean the World, an amazing organization that’s transforming what’s wasted in this industry into lifesaving gifts for people in need of proper sanitation.

The entire PYM staff was very accessible and approachable. The information provided was very realistic and practical. I walked away feeling like I had received some great insight, networked with people who were willing to share information and I feel refreshed and renewed. Most of all, I feel like my time was well spent … definitely NOT just another ‘waste of time’ networking meeting! —
