UIA launches its 2018 survey on the meetings of international associations


The Union of International Associations (UIA) has invited 25,000 international associations to participate in its seventh edition of the Survey on International Meetings Issues to uncover how they organize their meetings and conferences. The results of the survey will be announced at the Annual Associate Members Meeting / UIA Associations Round Table Europe in Lyon on November 15th and published on UIA website after the event.

The UIA conducts the survey every three years, and it is the largest survey looking into the meetings behavior of all the diverse types of international associations representing civic, charitable, commercial, or industrial interests around the world. By conducting the survey on a regular basis, those involved in the process of organizing international meetings can get a sense of changes over the years as well as the challenges of the current environment.
