We kick started our Christmas break with the AAE conference in Birmingham ACUK19# Another great event for the Association of Association Executives held at the ICC Birmingham.
A variety of cutting edge sessions on current challenges, fake news, event enhancement and influencer marketing to name a few. There were plenty things to keep delegates engaged from Breakfast Brains sessions to start the day, expert mentoring, and pop up master classes which took us into the networking drinks on day one.
Day two we heard of the success stories of the associations nominated for the awards which took place in the afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the conference acting as facilitator to two early morning sessions on Governance and Generation Z, and whether we should use regulation to ensure diversity on programmes. We met some really interesting new people and heard about a lot of the current challenges they are facing.
The AAE International event will take place in Portugal in 2020. https://www.associationexecutives.org/events.html
Now it's time for us to take a little break to catch up on work and some serious relaxation! We wish you all a very happy festive season and hope to see you all in 2020!
