As a strategic partner of the event, Viparis will host the 2014 Edition of the International and European Associations Congress (IEAC), taking place from April 27- 29 at the CNIT.

This 12th edition has established itself as Europe's most authoritative educational programme, providing association executives with a unique opportunity to learn, share and network with their peers. Marta Gomes, Director of Congress Sales at Viparis, says: “With this partnership, Viparis wishes to demonstrate its close commitment to the association sector”.

Damian Hutt, founder of the Association Congress Series, and Executive Director of Associations Network, says: “Viparis is the ideal partner and Paris is the ideal location for our congress, being a highly attractive and an easy-access destination”.

According to ICCAʼs recent 50-year report, A Modern History of International Meetings, Paris has been continuously listed as the number one destination for the past 30 years and contributes to drive up event attendance.
