56th EMWA Conference
9-24 November 2023

This 2023 Autumn conference offers EMWA’s high-quality professional development and networking opportunities. 

On 9 and 10 November we will be hosting an opening session that will be streamed for you to attend virtually, or there will be options to join one of the Local EMWA Groups who will be meeting to view the content together. 

From 13 November, we’ll be running a programme of virtual EMWA Professional Development Programme workshops.

The conference offers EMWA members opportunities to learn through seminars, scientific presentations, and workshops. It also includes our Freelance Business Forum.

We look forward to seeing you in November!

Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the EMWA Executive Committee, we have great pleasure in welcoming you to the 56th EMWA Conference from Thursday 9 November to Friday 24 November 2023.

On Thursday 9 and Friday 10 November 2023, we will have some hybrid sessions that you can view from the comfort of your own home or office, or by joining one of our regional hubs to view the content with your EMWA colleagues. 

To avoid travel for our local EMWA members, we will stream the opening day across Europe and beyond. Thanks to the support of several networking groups, we can offer our members local networking events in more than 4 European countries.

The EMWA Professional Development Committee has prepared a comprehensive education programme, with 29 online workshops, covering a broad range of topics.

In addition to the workshops, the conference offers a number of events outside the formal education programme, such as seminars and the Freelance Business Forum.

We would like to thank our Head Office and the team of committee members, workshop leaders and all volunteers who have been working for many months to bring you this hybrid event.

We hope that this year’s unique conference setup will give you the opportunity to get the most out of your EMWA experience.

We wish you all an interesting and enjoyable conference.
