This includes private community access, member discount for PCMA events and 100+ OnDemand education session, as well as exclusive digital content.
In addition, PCMA-ICESAP will roll-out a series of local education and networking events across six markets in APAC, along with its annual conference.

PCMA-ICESAP president, Nigel Gaunt, said: “We are delighted to have this talented group of professionals driving our member and greater audience engagement in the region. Since PCMA acquired ICESAP, we have developed a number of new initiatives including more than 12 regional education and networking events in 2018.”
“Our regional vice presidents will be instrumental in collaborating not only on events but all our enhanced member benefits and services. To ensure they have the capacity to take on the scope of the role, they are recruiting regional panel members from local PCMA-ICESAP members in each of the six regions to support their local initiatives.”
PCMA also announced it has merged the ICESAP and PCMA’s regional advisory boards, creating one board for PCMA APAC. The 2018 regional board will be led by Oscar Cerezales, COO Asia Pacific, MCI Group.
