The 2017 Association World Congress, taking place in Vienna, Austria from May 2-4, has been designed with both newcomers and experts in mind. More than 70 speakers have been lined up to discuss current and future trends as well as the most common challenges facing international associations.
The Association World Congress will be split into six different streams including Leading your Sector: Thought Leadership and Professional Development and The Explosion of Video: Video Communications and TV Channel Strategy.
Other than the six key streams, the congress has also been divided into three general meetings: The Association Leader’s Forum, The Aspiring Leader’s Meeting, and The Medical Association’s Focus Meeting. Within each group, there will be an increased focus on case studies and their findings.
A number of workshops lead by specialists with topics such as Social Media, Membership Growth and Sales Skills for Non-sales People have also been planned.
Keynote speakers will include Cynthia Cherry, President and CEO of the International Leadership Association, Lodwijk Klootwijk, Director of the European Golf Course Owners Association, and Sarah Sadek, CEO of XYZ University.
