Who's attending the Associations UK Congress next month
There are a wide range of organisations and delegates attending this years’ Associations UK Congress 2019, which is taking place next month on 16-17 December. Delegate numbers are up 45% on last year (as they were at 5 weeks before) and the extensive programme has enabled CEOs and other leaders, events specialists, Membership experts and marketers, as well as commercial functions.
Delegates organisation's include for example: British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG), Society for Endocrinology, Royal College of Physicians, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), The Investor Relations Society, Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL), Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, National Association of Jewellers, British Veterinary Nursing Association, The Research Quality Association (RQA) and The Business Continuity Institute (BCI).
The programme is the best opportunity to learn new processes, increase peformance personally and for your organisation. Learning best practice from the business techniques of your peers and staying abreast of the latest developments in associations is essential to offering good value for your members and your sector community.
Th Expo has a wider range of technology suppliers than previously, including a brand-new membership technology offering that launched last week. The selection of events services, venues and cities for event organisers to meet include new exhibitors too.
The benefits of networking are many: the industry experts that you have the chance to exchange tips and tactics with become a part of your knowledge pool, allowing you to expand your personal network. This can lead to new business, career, or personal growth opportunities. Your network can be an excellent source of new perspectives and ideas to help you in your role. Exchanging information on challenges, experiences and goals is a key benefit of networking because it allows you to gain new insights that you may not have otherwise thought of. A wide network of informed, interconnected contacts means broader access to new and valuable information.
Networking at the Associations UK Congress not only includes the traditional coffee breaks and lunch but also the opportunity to join one of the small dinner groups, attend the drinks reception, discuss great ideas at the Breakfast Brains each morning and attend the Awards Lunch - a late start at 2pm on Day 2 to enable more people to attend.
