Join us at the 6th European Association Summit in Brussels on 8-9 March 2018!

GAHP is a proud partner of the European Association Summit. This year we power a panel discussion on Growth strategies for associations.

Our prestigeous panel is composed of

  • Lori Andersen, CEO, International Sign Association (ISA), Alexandria, VA, USA
  • David Macadam, CEO, Middle East Council of Shopping Centres (MECSC/ICSC) Dubai, UAE
  • Hélène Nicora, Chief Representative Officer-Europe, International Trademark Association (INTA), Brussels, Belgium.

The panel discussion will be co-moderated by

  • Terrance Barkan, GLOBALSTRAT, Switzerland-USA
  • Hervé Bosquet, Global Association Hubs Partnership (GAHP).

Better serving the members, providing value, and building engagement is currently the name of the game in association management around the world. Sister associations in different regions are increasingly competing with one another to grow their share of the market, regionally and internationally.

Much like what happens in the private sector, the need to adapt products and services to an increasingly informed and demanding market implies evolutionary change, continuous improvement, and constant learning. Scarce human and financial resources require to focus on priorities and carefully manage the risks of growing programs and activities, and/or transitioning into new markets.

Generating alternative revenue streams, alongside the fee structure for the membership, is extremely challenging. In this session, you will find out how leading associations have successfully introduced growth strategies and have had to adjust their business or operating models to facilitate the implementation of their expansion plans.

You will also have the opportunity to discuss various growth strategies and gain hands-on experience from speakers and delegates who have already successfully embarked on such strategies.

Are you interested in participating in an event that offers the opportunity to share information as well as knowledge and the possibility to network with other international associations? Then, the EAS is the annual event in Brussels for association professionals by association professionals you or your fellow colleagues should absolutely join!

This year’s Summit schedule has a lot of novelties, with more than 40 speakers and moderators from various associations, sharing their knowledge in 60 minutes sessions, addressing issues ranging from communications, events, internal organisation or membership.

As speakers at this year’s edition, we are pleased to offer a special reduced fee about 199€ instead of the standard 259€. To register you just need to click here.
