Association Meeting Conference Gathers PCOs, European Society of Association Executives

Speakers from The International Association for Professional Innovation Management, The Royal Society of Medicine and TFI Group are set to join leaders from The European Society of Association Executives (ESAE) to deliver content at the 2015 Association Meetings Conference on Monday, July 6 at the QEII Centre, London, just before the annual Meetings Show.

The event’s theme - Shaping Your Meetings for the Future - Educate, Connect and Inspire - can apply to both domestic and international in-house planners and agency personnel working with associations.

Topics include:

·         How to innovate on a budget: What can associations do to transform and update their events at low cost?

·         Meeting Planning as an evolving profession: Looking to the future of the PCO and the Association roles.

·         Crystal Balls & Toolkits – Technology, Sponsorships and Destinations

·         Meeting Planning as an Evolving Function

·         Hybrid Membership Models & Powerful Agendas for Younger Generations

The event content--which has been created by Linda Pereira, Conference Chair and Executive Director, CPL Events in partnership with the ESAE--has been crafted to address the specific needs of UK and international association meeting and event planners, PCOs and AMCs. 

Chris Raudonat, ESAE Director and Independent Management Consultant will present a workshop on Hybrid Membership Models & Powerful Agendas for younger generations. “In a world of free online communities and multiple careers, prospective younger members are getting more selective about how they interact with associations, face-to-face and during events," Raudonat said in a statement. "They expect to be able to determine the value that joining - both as a member and a delegate - will provide. While many associations are still keeping traditional fee-based models, others are switching to ‘freemium’ or hybrid approaches to attract new and different members and integrate these in their meetings strategies. This workshop will address changes in memberships and how these influence and inspire new models of holding events.”
