Union of International Associations (UIA) Round Table Asia-Pacific goes virtual – hosted and powered by Seoul Tourism Organization
UIA’s 8th Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific on 17 & 18 September 2020 will take place in a virtual meeting space set in Seoul
In its 14th year of organizing Round Tables for international associations, this will be the first time UIA will hold the event in a fully virtual format.
Participants will meet speakers who are association experts and who will describe challenges they face in their association life and how they are dealing with these. Delegates and speakers will split into virtual break-out rooms for parallel sessions, where each speaker will present a workshop on their topic. In the virtual break-out-rooms, delegates will be able to conduct discussions in real time with the speaker and their peers.
The programme of this UIA Associations Round Table will address topics of immediate interest and relevance for associations, such as working with remote teams, finding the ideal destination for an event, association business model innovation, mobilizing resources, achieving goals and finding partners. A keynote speech from the UIA President on the UN’s 75th Anniversary will also be part of the programme.
Participants will be invited to join mini games individually or in teams, with opportunities to win prizes. They will also have the opportunity to join virtual tours of the beautiful and hospitable city of Seoul, which will showcase Seoul’s tourist attractions and convention options.
UIA team members will moderate the sessions throughout, guiding and assisting the delegates. Seoul Tourism Organization will provide the virtual meeting platform where easy access, networking and educational content will combine to provide an engaging and rewarding experience for delegates.
UIA Associate Members and other industry partners are welcome to join all education and networking sessions through the full virtual event.
Registration for the Round Table will open in late June via the UIA website: https://uia.org/roundtable/2020/asiapacific
