The Barcelona Convention Bureau is the first confirmed Regional Destination Partner to support and engage with the Geneva International Association Forum (GIAF), set to take place on 17-18 September 2020.
“The partnership is realised under the umbrella of common entrepreneurial spirit and creative mindset. This is now more needed than ever before", says Kai Troll, President of ASSOCIATIONWORLD and one of the Spokespersons of the Geneva International Association Forum. In times of Covid-19 and in the aftermath, we need to find new effective ways of how we as associations and partners deal and collaborate with each other.
Whilst the Geneva Convention Bureauis the premier partner and the overall host of GIAF, the regional destination partnership model is based on regional exclusivity. It allows GIAF to work with partners who are interested in such exclusivity, representing their continents, their region and their communities. These partnerships are all about adding value to the event itself and more importantly to the experience of the delegates and attendees.
“We are currently evaluating such partnerships with destinations representing Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas,”Kai Troll explains.
The two-day event will bring together representatives of international and European associations, non-profit organizations, federations, professional societies, NGO’s and universities. Its primary goal is to establish an annual international leading platform for knowledge sharing in a major host destinations for associations, Geneva.
