What is EAS?

What is EAS?

For the eighth consecutive year, visit.brussels is organising the European Association Summit (EAS) in Brussels the 10 & 11 of March 2020. The event has become an unmissable opportunity to share information and knowledge, and network with other international associations.

The Summit features educational content delivered by association experts and professionals from various fields. 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.

This annual peer-to-peer education and networking forum is being organised in collaboration with the event founding partners: ESAE (European Society of Association Executives), FAIB (Federation of European & International Associations Based in Belgium) and UIA (Union of International Associations) and key association related organisations from around the world.
