visit.brussels and its partners invite you to the 5th edition of the European Association Summit next 30 and 31 May 2017.

What is EAS?

The European Association Summit is a key event designed by association professionals for association professionals. Focusing on practical cases ranging from local issues, governance, member relations or communications and new technologies the conference has proved to be of great added value for attending association representatives and we aim to put our meeting at a new level.

Be part of our panel of speakers!

The functioning of associations often reflects various changes taking place in Europe and the world. Has there been any impact on your association management? Which factors or circumstances have been the most relevant? Have you been an actor or observer of meaningful trends?

Share your story and contribute with your insights to this important event.

We would be interested in proposals that can show how new technologies, inside practices and recent business or political developments, have had an impact on associations’ activities:

  • Membership and providing value to members (how to engage members, new models & incentives, how to develop added-value etc.)
  • Project and event management (communication & marketing for events, new social media tools, future technologies, event planning, etc.)
  • Finance and performance (funding, sponsorships and partnerships, administrative and fiscal matters, etc.)
  • Leadership strategy and change (staff management issues and tools, new business models, opportunities and threats, youth associations etc.)
  • Communication and public affairs (lobbying, EU and national associations’ cooperation, making a public campaign in Brussels, etc.)
