At the Associations World Congress on 12 – 14 March, hundreds of association executives were educated and informed on best practice, benchmarking, governance and many other business-critical topics specifically tailored for International and European associations. The Congress, managed and organised by the Association of Association Executives (AAE) was held at an exceptional venue - Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp ‘a room with a ZOO’. More than 241 associations and over 500 attendees in total, heard from some of the best association speakers in the world, some coming from as far as Australia and South Africa and the headline keynote speakers delivered punchy messages to captivated audiences.
Damian Hutt, Executive Director, AAE said “We’re very pleased with the outcome for this year’s Congress. We had higher numbers of senior association executives attend this year, which is a testament to associations showing their commitment to be educated, and grow their organisations by attending our Congress.”
