A new approach for the Associations World Congress 2022

Association news
Published on 3 December 2021

AAE's flagship Associations World Congress is taking place next year 3-5 July 2022 in Cascais, Portugal as a physical event, with a new format and approach.

The educational programme is for association leaders and events strategists, with a series of half-day sessions. A choice of four sessions will be available at any time. The sessions will be at "Executive Programme" level and led by very senior association executives, highly regarded consultants and faculty members of Business Schools. Sessions will include experiences of associations, group exercises and reflection. The programme will be published in January 2022.

Instead of the exhibition, there will be half the number of suppliers represented, and appointments will be made by delegates to attend three meetings per day. Appointments are not during sessions or refreshment / lunch breaks and take place at the supplier's tables.

Expert Briefings will continue where delegates are briefed on current best practice and discuss between themselves their challenges for their association, events and services.

We are very pleased to be hosted by Visit Cascais, the Estoril Convention Centre and various amazing hotels, as well as one of Europe's leading PCOs CPL Conferences & Events.

Thousands of delegates over the last 16 years have benefitted from the Associations Congresses, improving their association's performance, brought new products and services to their members quicker and better, and become outstanding in leading their sectors.
