As usual at this time of every year, activities and professional development events in project management are plentiful at the global and regional level as well as in our country, Argentina.

During the month of October it has taken place the PMI Global Congress in New Orleans with the participation of more than 2000 assistants from all around the world and with a large number of exhibitions of great interest to the profession.

At the regional level, in the southern region of Latin America, a series of conferences which have been named “PMI Tour Cono Sur” take place during the month of November.

These congresses, which have been started by three countries in 2005, have given to the Southern Cone countries some visibility in the world of project management.

Today the “PMI Tour Cono Sur” is composed by ten congresses held in six countries: Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia and they congregate about 10,000 attendees throughout the region.

This year PMI Argentinian Chapters will offer their “PMI Tour Cono Sur” Congresses in the cities of Mendoza and Buenos Aires.

PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter’s Congress will take place on 8 and 9 November, with one day of excellent lectures and another day of team building activities at a local winery.
