Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Tony,

The Creative Construction Conference will be held 28Jun-01Jul'20 in Opatija, Croatia.  One of the conference founders (and keynote speaker) is a scheduling guru, Miklos Hajdu, so it might be of interest.

Good luck, tom

Great suggestions. I appreciate you sharing the information.

True, the majority of them seem to be in the USA. Do you happen to know of any more events associated to project controls for construction and engineering taking place in Europe?

Need to keep an eye on which events are occuring and worth considering attending and/or sponsoring. I am based in Australia and unforatunately most events seem to be in the US which makes it difficult to attend most events.

I used to publish them on my website, but haven't done so for a number of years: http://www.austprojplan.com.au/project-planning-scheduling-project-controls-events/

I've excluded the many regional/divisional/local chapter type of events as there are too many. And I tend to focus on those useful to project controls for construction and engineering. There's probably a while lot more if you start considering project controls in other industries, general project maangement type of events (eg. PMI events), and lately there seem to be quite a few specifically on PMO also.
