Launched in 2017, Boardroom is a niche, audience-driven magazine specialised in association matters. It covers a wide spectrum of issues of interest to international associations and is specifically targeting association executives, secretary generals, planners, who are looking to improve themselves and their organisations professionally. It also gives voice to destinations, venues, industry organisations, etc. who can help and partner with these associations. Boardroom’s design is to ensure an easy platform for readers to engage in a wide variety of association savvy articles.
According to their bylaws, associations have to organise congresses, yearly, bi-annually, or every three years outside of their headquarters This obligation makes the so-called meetings industry a very stable one. The founders of Boardroom have been active in this industry for decades, have extensive knowledge of the trade press, and can help suppliers market themselves to the associations. With their vast network achieved through years of experience , they act as a perfect medium to reach out to the international association community and decision-makers.
A pan-European magazine with an additional US-based associations database in development, Boardroom is headquartered in Brussels, as to keep close contact with its targeted audience and to be able to follow the evolution and trends among them. Brussels is the biggest hub of associations, with more than 1,800 headquarters of European and international associations, making it the second hub in the world after Washington and the first in Europe. The printed version is distributed all over Europe and in the US, the rest of the world is reached digitally. In addition to the ‘regular’ magazine, special theme supplements are also to be published on request.
Boardroom is published 5 times a year, with a print and digital circulation, and has staff in Switzerland, France and the UK.
Boardroom is the proud partner of PCMA (the Professional Convention Management Association), IAPCO (the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers), AIPC (the International Association of Convention Centres), and The Iceberg, the newest platform providing an extended distribution of case studies within the meetings industry.
