The Association of Association Executives (AAE) announced earlier this week the launch of its dedicated service for association conference and event managers across Europe. The service, which is the result of demand from AAE community members and in-depth interview research, includes education and information with online forums, networking events, seminars, masterclasses and conferences in Brussels, Geneva, Amsterdam and London and is complemented by dedicated streams at its Association Congress series.
Executive Director of AAE, Damian Hutt, says: “This service we are launching provides business-critical guidance, best practice and education that supports conference and event strategists and managers in Europe, to develop and manage their event programmes. The new service and content is created specifically for executives of associations, societies and federations in Europe. Our service supports all associations, not just those with specific event-rotation and not just their annual congress – it’s about their whole events programme and we address many high-level issues not just venues and city selection.”
Any association executive of any role can take-up the service, which is important as events may be only one part of their responsibilities. Services for other roles will be launched at AAE events in July, including for Membership, Marketing, Education and Leadership.
