The FEM EMEA Summit is just over a week away at the Intercontinental O2, London, on the 8-9 November 2018.

Set to bring more than 300 global mobility professionals together, the FEM Global Mobility Summit is the best event of the year for industry specialists to gain fresh insights, share best practice and make invaluable new connections.

1. The No.1 Global Mobility Forum

The Forum for Expatriate Management is exactly as its name suggests – a forum where the industry leaders and innovators share their ideas and best practice. It is the arena for Global Mobility professionals from all sectors and disciplines to meet together and learn from each other.

2. Practical advice on the vital topics

Whether you need to know about changes to immigration, tax or social security regulations, cost containment, increasing diversity and talent management, duty of care, policy and program redesign, ROI, rotators and contractors, localisation, segmentation, stealth travellers, utilising technology or managing vendor partnerships,we have all this and much more covered for you. See our agenda here

3. Global reach, local focus

Drawn from right across Western, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, our speakers are senior figures from a huge range of industries and sectors and are invited to speak precisely because they operate on a global scale, but also because they understand the unique challenges of their region or country. 

4. Our biggest line up yet…

With our biggest line-up of speakers yet, engage with industry leaders, innovators  and experts from all over the region. Join senior figures from organisations including: Arcadis, Astra Zeneca, BD, Bisaf, the British Council, Capco, Cognizant, DXC, E.ON, EY, Heineken, Honeywell, IBM, Foster & Partners, Philips, Publicis Re:Sources, Ramboll, Siemens, The Home Office, Time to Change and WorleyParsons. 

5. Formats for every style of learning

Do you like to listen and take notes? Or do you prefer to work through issues and ask questions, to share your own insights and to challenge others’ thinking? Choose from a wide range of formats to suit your own style of learning. We have lively panel discussions, benchmarking roundtables for peer-to peer sharing, expert insight sessions, case studies, keynote sessions, interactive workshops, and mobility masterclasses. All our Summits and Conferences are CPD accredited too, so be sure to complete our post-event survey to claim your credits.

6. Learn from award-winners

Book into our Mobility Masterclasses. Presented by EMMAs winners and industry leaders, these highly engaging sessions cover a range of topics that includes: how to create an award-winning team for your program (whether it's large or small), how to find that winning formula with your vendor partnership and how to harness technology for true innovation. You can learn best practice too if you want to redesign your global mobility program, or need to know how to better manage your business travellers and associated risks.   

7. Increase your professional network

Raise your professional profile and make new, valuable connections during the sessions and the extended networking breaks. FEM creates a collaborative, co-operative atmosphere where you can exchange ideas with like-minded peers.

8. Source new solutions and suppliers

Meet and talk with new suppliers in a relaxed environment and find out how their specialist knowledge, expertise and tools can help you find the solutions to your most pressing challenges. 

9. Brexit - hear from the government policy-makers 

Sorry - but we had to mention it... Brexit is unavoidable, and whether you are a UK citizen or not, it will affect you and your business. We have organised two special sessions with senior government policy makers from the Home Office – there is no political agenda – just an unmissable opportunity to find out exactly what is happening and what you need to do. 

10. It’s FEM’s 10th Anniversary!

How could you not be there for our biggest and best EMEA Summit ever? With inclusive sessions open to all from the very start of the Summit to the end, plus some ever-popular Corporates-only roundtables where you can discuss your challenges in confidence, there is unmissable content for everyone. Bring your team and be a part of this thought-provoking and invaluable opportunity. Take just two days out of the office and find a whole decade’s worth of inspiration!
