Communication: the challenge of saying it right
The UIA Round Table aims to promote and facilitate the work of international associations by providing learning and networking opportunities. We thank our partners for making it possible. They will be present, should you want to talk to them, but there will be no sales presentations in the programme: this is an event for training and networking.
