Review of EAS 2019

What made the 7th edition such a success

Share & Co-Create – the motto could not have fit better to the European Association Summit 2019!

From 28 February to 1 March 2019 Europe’s leading event for association professionals took place in the city ranking first in terms of seats of international associations: Brussels.

Participation at EAS offered two days full of interactive sessions and vivid discussions, exciting workshops and inspirational lectures with pertinent best practice examples: The optimal opportunity to share experiences with like-minded people, receive valuable tips for the development of your own association and expand your network.

As in previous years, this year's EAS Brussels was a great success. This was due not only to an attractive programme with relevant topics and excellent networking opportunities, but also to the focus on sustainability, a special feature of this year's event.
