The 2012 Synergy Conference was held in the Indigo2 Arena in southeast London on 1 November. The event was sponsored by the UK Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and was attended by project management professionals from the UK and Europe. Her Royal Highness Princess Anne was a special guest in support of project management as a discipline. Speakers included members of the British Parliament and industry and focused on a variety of project management topics, including lessons learned from the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
