Dubai Association Conference Returns in 2019

The second edition of the Dubai Association Conference, being held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will take place 9-10 December under the theme of ‘Driving change: The societal impact of associations’.

Over the course of two days the conference, organised by Dubai Association Centre and taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre, will bring together association executives from around the world, government representatives, industry leaders, as well as university faculties and students, in a space focused on building the association community in the region for the purpose of positive social impact.

Focused on the value and impact associations have on societies through this year’s theme, the conference will explore four sub-themes: Community Well-Being, Knowledge and Research, Business and Opportunity, and Creativity and Innovation.

The key objective of this themed approach is to anchor associations more closely to the respective business sectors and knowledge clusters in which they have the means to generate a positive and sustainable change. In addition, the conference will serve as a platform to facilitate discussions on the value proposition of associations that go beyond direct and indirect economic benefits.
