Deciding on which Performance Measurement Conference for 2019? Why not #1?

by | Jan 9, 2019

Performance Measurement Conference? We’re counting down (or is it up?) to 30!

My, how time flies (as the saying goes)! We launched the PMAR conferences (Performance Measurement, Attribution & Risk) in 2003.  Our conference schedule for 2019 is:

  • PMAR North America XVII (Philadelphia, PA) – May 14 & 15
  • PMAR Europe X (London) – June 19 & 20
  • PMAR West III (San Diego) – November 18 & 19

In preparing for a recent video (which can be found here), I realized that our upcoming San Diego event will be our 30th PMAR!

I think it’s fair to say that no one has done as many performance measurement conferences as The Spaulding Group.

PMAR is the #1 Performance Measurement Conference

I’ll admit that this is quite a bold statement. But, having attended literally hundreds of conferences, in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia, I think I can be somewhat objective (or at least try to be).

Here are just a few of the things that make PMAR #1:

  • The Spaulding Group is not a conference company hosting a performance measurement conference; rather, we’re a performance measurement company hosting a performance measurement conference. I.e., we are hosting a conference in the industry in which we work. That’s a HUGE advantage:
  • We still provide our attendees with printed copies of the slides, which facilitate note taking and make it easier for our attendees to follow along with the presentations.
  • We gift our attendees with the audio of all the presentations
  • And, we are quite unique in that we also gift our attendees with printed copies of the transcripts, replete with photos of the event. We do this because
    • We believe that the presentations are worth memorializing
    • The transcripts, along with the audio, will help you recall what was discussed. As I understand it, we tend to remember only about 10% of what we hear, and so, by having these materials, you’ll be better able to refresh your memory!
    • And, you can share these with your colleagues.
  • We are also unique in that we actually try to make our conference fun! We do this in a variety of ways, one being some of the cool sessions we have, like Performance Measurement Jeopardy!
  • We are also unique in that we offer a risk-free guarantee: if you attend PMAR and don’t believe it is as good as we say it is, then we’ll refund your money.

It’s a fact: Performance Professionals Prefer PMAR.

If you’ve never been to PMAR, come join us in 2019, and find out why.

We’re excited with what 2019 is bringing

The year 2018 was a great one for The Spaulding Group, and we hope it was for you, too.

And 2019 is shaping up to be even better! And our trifecta of PMARs, culminating with our 30th, is just part of the excitement!

Please plan to come to PMAR in 2019: you’ll learn a lot, meet a lot of great people, have some fun, and walk away with actionable information.
