UIA’s 9th Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific on 21 & 22 October 2021 will take place at the Congres Square Nihonbashi in Tokyo, Japan, hosted by Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB). UIA’s 14th Associations Round Table Europe on 18 & 19 November 2021 will take place at the Prague Congress Centre in Prague, Czech Republic, hosted by Prague Convention Bureau (PCB).
The Associations Round Tables are organised annually by the Union of International Associations (UIA). The Round Tables, 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 organising Round Tables for international associations, the UIA is excited to bring this main event to Tokyo and to Prague. 2021 will be the first year UIA will hold the Round Table in a hybrid format, giving associations the opportunity to meet and learn in Tokyo, in Prague – or from any location around the world.
The hosts, Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau and Prague Convention Bureau, will welcome the delegates to these exciting cities 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 with the speaker and their peers.
For onsite delegates, the hosts will provide diverse opportunities for exploring Tokyo and Prague.
UIA Associate Members and other industry partners are welcome to join all education and networking sessions throughout the event.
Registration – for in-person and virtual participation – for the Round Tables is now open via the UIA websites:
