UIA’s 9th Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific took place as a hybrid event in Tokyo, Japan on 21 & 22 October 2021

The Associations Round Tables are organized annually by the Union of International Associations (UIA). The Round Tables, that are the core of UIA’s education project, provide an opportunity to learn through networking and through practice, to meet other international associations and share experience and knowledge. In its 15th year of organizing Round Tables for international associations, the UIA was excited to bring this main event to Tokyo. This was the first time UIA has held the Round Table in a hybrid format, giving associations around the globe the opportunity to meet and learn in Tokyo.

UIA’s 14th Associations Round Table Europe took place at the Prague Congress Centre in Prague, Czech Republic on 18 & 19 November – hosted by Prague Convention Bureau (PCB)

The Associations Round Table Europe event of the Union of International Associations (UIA) was held in the Prague Congress Centre on November 18 & 19. This 14th Round Table Europe, hosted by the Prague Convention Bureau, took place in a hybrid format, which provided an excellent solution for those delegates unable to attend the event in-person.

131 delegates, from 34 countries, representing 98 international organizations participated. 58 in-person participants were welcomed onsite in Prague. Easy platform access, networking and educational content combined to provide an engaging and rewarding experience for all delegates. Plenary sessions were presented on “Associations in the World: Speaking Truth to Power” and “Achieving goals, finding partners: UIA’s Global Civil Society Database”. Interactive workshops addressed current topics such as: membership retention and engagement; the application of artificial intelligence in society; empowering teams by design thinking; the organization of hybrid events; and the relations between the United Nations system and civic associations.

The presentations and the workshops were led by association experts and the delegates shared and discussed their associations’ experience, challenges and solutions.
