eu ass summit2016 will organize The European Association Summit (EAS) from 31 May through 2 June 2016. The EAS is the annual meeting of association sector professionals.

Through April 30, international associations can still register for the EAS, the annual training and networking forum, at the 'early bird' rate (EUR 195 instead of 245 thereafter). This admission provides access not only to the European Association Summit (EAS) event, but also to the prestigious European Business Summit (EBS).

A large number of associations have already signed up for the 2016 edition, including the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO), European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO), European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS), International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), European Tyre Recycling Association (ETRA), European Food Information Resource (EuroFIR), International Platinum Group Metals Association (IPA), International Bartenders Association (IBA), Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA)...

During the EAS, international associations will share their vision with their counterparts. All presentations have been built around a common theme:' Common purpose, common challenges, time to share solutions». Thanks to this promising theme, inspiring speakers and a wide array of associations already registered, the programme promises to be rich in edifying discoveries and exchanges of ideas.

Among the "Keynote Speakers" we find Susan West, professor at the Solvay Business School in Brussels, which focuses largely on the development of leaders and their organisations. She will address the topic of "Leadership conversations: influencing without authority '.
