Review: PDMI summit in Miami Beach, March 31 - June 2, 2019

Coming back to Miami

People like change, especially when it comes to the changing location of the European summer conference. But I think most of us Europeans enjoy going back to Miami Beach, leaving the European winter behind us to enjoy the sun, the ambiance of the city, the fashion, art and great restaurants that Miami has to offer. And, as a special bonus for the jet lagged traveler, there is the beachfront at sunrise ... what great surroundings to meet with your global business partners!

The Loews Hotel was again a perfect fit. The PDMI conference floor was very well visited and who would have wanted to miss the after show receptions in the hotel garden, where attendees enjoyed great networking opportunities accompanied by snacks of local cuisine, as well as music and drinks.

Rumour has it that members of this association were seen in the trunk of a cab cruising to an after show party which was reportedly an incredible reception directly at the waterfront.

Being back in Europe waiting for the summer to come, we know one thing for sure - we will be back in the sunshine state again next year!
