Call for Proposals for the European Association Summit

Coming 8-9 March 2018 the European Association Summit (EAS) invites all association representatives to its 6th edition at SQUARE-BRUSSELS MEETING CENTRE, with a new format of sessions focusing on exchange and interactivity.

The 2018 European Association Summit is on its way. With a deadline set by 29 September a call for proposals launched early summer aims to gather abstracts for short presentations, allowing a variety of sectors to show their experience in key areas such as finance, events, advocacy, campaigns, business models or governance.

Elisabeth Van Ingelgem, Director of visit.brussels Convention and Association Bureau, said: “We wish to focus on concrete aspects of each case brought by an association. Having a narrow focus of the presenter’s speech allows the participants to have a more dynamic debate afterwards and come out to clear-cut conclusions, too”.

The format of the sessions has been adapted to match those expectations. A moderator shall deal with case studies of 5 minutes explained by maximum 3 speakers per session followed by an interactive workshop with the audience within 60 minutes. The goal is to facilitate the knowledge sharing in terms of success or failure and be a learning experience with tangible outcomes.

The strategic partners of the EAS already include UIA, ESAE, PCMA, ICCA, the Global Association Hubs Partnership, as well as FAIB and Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management.
