What Are the Top Concerns for Associations?

The International and European Associations Congress is an opportunity for not-for-profit executives to meet and discuss the pressing issues facing their profession, as well as a chance to make new friends. 

This year's event, which took place in the sleek surrounds of Swiss Tech Convention Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland, attracted 218 delegates (up from 165 last year) who explored a range of topics around membership, meetings management, governance, and growth. The two-day meeting had a refreshed format, with exhibitors brought into the fold as business partners, making dialogue between the association executives and the suppliers to the sector a more informal, relaxed affair.

Another new feature was the introduction of workshops and a slot called association success stories, which gave delegates the chance to share best practice with their peers. 

James Lancaster caught up with Damian Hutt, executive director of event organizers Association Network on location.
