7th UIA Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific

Thursday 19 & Friday 20 September 2019
Royal Cliff Grand Hotel, Pattaya, Thailand

The Union of International Associations (UIA) is an independent non-profit research institute founded in 1907 which documents and promotes the work of international associations. UIA shares its information on associations through its publications: the Yearbook of International Organizations, and the International Congress Calendar. UIA also promotes the work of associations by organizing educational activities, such as the UIA Associations Round Table.

Programme: Presentations on common challenges by peers working in international associations, with small group discussions to ask in-depth questions and to share and exchange knowledge and experience. See full programme below.

Participants: 100 participants working in and with (international) associations.

Fee: 2000 Thai Baht (ca. €60).

Thanks to the generous support of our host Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau, we are able to offer a high-level educational programme for a low fee. All other elements of the programme are complimentary! Delegates are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses.
