The 2nd European Association Summit will be held in Brussels on the 14th and 15th of May 2014 at the EBS.

The European Association Summit 2014 is the second summit organised by Visitbrussels (Brussels’ official convention bureau) in Europe’s capital city.

Visitbrussels has organised the EAS in collaboration with leading partners in the sector, such as the European Business Summit (EBS) as main partner and ESAE (European Society of Association Executives), FAIB (Federation of European & International Associations established in Belgium) and UIA (Union of International Associations) as content partners.

Under the slogan "Shaping your Association for the future- Inspire, Connect, Empower" the EAS is a unique peer-to-peer learning platform for international association executives. The programme confronts the real challenges facing international trade federations, professional associations and NGOs today- including attracting members, satisfying diverse clients, adding value to services and understanding the latest tools and techniques. For the second year, the EAS will provide a platform for discussion and a stimulating meeting point for colleagues, enabling operatives to add value to their organisations through a more complete understanding of the association environment today.

The views of leading EU politicians and industrialists will enrich the agenda and inspire professionals and academics on hot topics affecting international associations.
