European Association Summit: Time to register!
by Visit Brussels.

Share knowledge. The European Association Summit (EAS), the key event during which international associations exchange information, share knowledge, and network, is now accepting registrations. The annual conference for association sector professionals will run from 31 May through 2 June 2016 in Brussels.

Now in its fourth year, the EAS has launched a "call for presentations", which has once again touched off an impressive spontaneous reaction. Since last year the event has become the premiere scientific conference and the voice of the association sector. This is because the EAS is one of a kind: created by international associations, the event is also led by them. International association leaders present their vision in this forum and share it with their peers. Without fail this allows them to address the greatest challenges facing international associations. In addition, no European city has more international associations than Brussels, so it is the ideal venue for such a professional gathering.

How the EAS will inspire its participants in 2016!

Number of the month

Case by case. 36% of international associations select the location of their events on a case by case basis, and have no fixed policy of rotating between locations, according to UIA’s 2015 Survey on International Meeting Issues. Another 18% have no particular policy but do tend to rotate between locations.
