November 2, 2015 9:41:54 AM EST | By: Pam Buchanan, GMS

FEM EMEA in LondonThe Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) EMEA Summit is just around the corner! It’s not every day that industry experts get together to discuss how to be more strategic in global mobility, so we’re really looking forward to the event.

This year’s summit will be held November 6 at the Lancaster London Hotel. The agenda is packed full of great events and sessions, and it can be tricky to navigate the busy day. For those of you not familiar with FEM Summit, this event is a key opportunity for the global mobility community to meet with peers, network with suppliers and discuss the latest developments during a conference, exhibition and networking event. FEM holds an APAC, EMEA and Americas summit every year in international citities. The APAC Summit is December 1 in Hong Kong!

Here are a few highlights for the EMEA Summit, including the below session highlighting China and presented by Lexicon’s own Avrom Goldberg, Senior VP Global Solutions:
