Pime 2011

PIME 2011….three months and counting!

The countdown to PIME 2011 has already begun. From 13 – 16 February 2011, nuclear communicators from across Europe and beyond will get together in Brussels, at the Thon Hotel City Centre (Avenue du Boulevard 17, 1000 Brussels), to take part in what has become the annual conference for nuclear communicators on the international events calendar.

As always, PIME offers participants a unique opportunity to brainstorm on the major communications issues and challenges of the day, to exchange experiences and expertise, to network with fellow professionals and to find collective solutions to shared problems.

The PIME 2011 programme is in the process of being finalised and will be posted on the ENS PIME 2011 website as soon as it is ready. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of what you can expect in Brussels:

Day 1 Following on from the success of the PIME 2010 workshop on social media, and in response to popular demand, this year’s opening plenary session will be devoted to an extended analysis of the expanding world of blogs, Facebook and Twitter. The advent of social media and the power of the Internet have, in many ways, changed how journalists do their job and PIME will focus on how communicators must adapt their offer to the evolving needs of the media.

Another success from 2010 was the Communications Showcase, which will once again provide exhibitors with the chance to showcase their activities and get inspiration and useful tips from their fellow delegates. Let us know what kind of campaign materials you would like to have on display during the conference and we’ll take care of the rest.

Day 2 programme highlights include plenary session discussions on key issues like waste management and the highly sensitive issue of non-proliferation.

There will also be a plenary session on communicating new build and a number of parallel workshops.

Of course, PIME would not be PIME without the Conference Dinner and the presentation of the PIME Award for Communications Excellence. Once again the winning campaign will receive the recognition that it deserves… from PIME delegates themselves. Winning is all the sweeter when the recognition comes from your peers.

So, send in NOW the communications campaign that you would like to enter for this year’s award.

Mark the date in your diary, book your passage to the “capital of Europe” and make sure that you are part of the PIME experience!
