You’ll recognise the name but they’re new to the PMO Conference. Milestone are known for their specialism in Oracle Primavera, visit them in Jarvis Foyer throughout the conference or why not arrange a appointment during the conference or for afterwards.


The exhibition at The PMO Conference is in two locations – the main area, Florence Hall, where delegates will take breaks and refreshments plus the Jarvis Foyer adjacent to the main auditorium. Delegates can prebook appointments with any of the exhibitors beforehand. Tom and Richard will be in the Jarvis Foyer.
