PCMA gathered industry professionals from 36 countries in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for three days of education and inspiration aimed at driving economic and social progress through business events. Billie Jean King, Seth Godin, Geena Davis, Steve Pemberton and Kjell Nordstrom, Ph.D., were among 138 experts, advocates, industry leaders and celebrities to address the group.  More than half, 54 per cent, of presenters were female. “Every single person here is an influencer,’’ star athlete and change advocate Billie Jean King said in a January 8th Main Stage conversation before hitting tennis balls into the crowd. “When you wake up and have a fire in your belly, you can make a difference and change the world.’’ Approximately 4,000 business events strategists and industry leaders were in Pittsburgh for sessions covering innovation, design, leadership and technology. Approximately 1,200 tuned into live-streamed programming.
