UIA’s 9th Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific on 21 & 22 October 2021 will take place as a hybrid event at the Congres Square Nihonbashi in Tokyo, Japan.
The Associations Round Tables are organized annually by the Union of International Associations (UIA). The Round Tables, that are the core of UIA’s education project, provide an opportunity to learn through networking and through practice, to meet other international associations and share experience and knowledge.
In its 15th year of organizing Round Tables for international associations, the UIA is excited to bring this main event to Tokyo. This will be the first time UIA will hold the Round Table in a hybrid format, giving associations around the globe the opportunity to meet and learn in Tokyo.
Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB) will both welcome the delegates to this exciting city and provide the online meeting platform. Easy platform access, networking and educational content will combine to provide an engaging and rewarding experience for all onsite and virtual delegates. UIA team members will moderate the sessions throughout, guiding and assisting the delegates.
Participants will meet speakers who are association experts and who will describe challenges they face in their association life and how they are meeting these challenges. Delegates and speakers will split into – virtual and onsite – break-out rooms for sessions, where each speaker will present a workshop on their topic. All delegates will be able to conduct discussions in real time with the speaker and their peers.
For onsite delegates, TCVB will provide diverse opportunities for exploring Tokyo and its unique flavor. UIA Associate Members and other industry partners are welcome to join all education and networking sessions throughout the event.
Registration for the Round Table will open in June via the UIA website.
Supported by the Union of International Associations (UIA), the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) and the Interel Group, the global public affairs and association management consultancy, Headquarters Magazines serve the needs of international associations organising worldwide congresses.
