,MANAGING CHANGE'

 

Gathering representatives of international and European Associations, Non-Profits, Federations, Societies and NGOs, BIAF aims at establishing an international leading platform and knowledge sharing event in one of the world’s flagship host destinations for professional associations and non-profit organizations. 

BIAF’s primary mission this year is to bring together international / European associations and non-profit organizations to provide knowledge transfer, to enable peer-to-peer exchange, to share best practices and to design joint initiatives to tackle common challenges, to help achieve better results and greater impact.

Brussels is an institutional, political and advocacy hub like no other in the world, and a central location for international diplomacy, innovation and professional expertise. The city’s unique ecosystem of public, private, non-profit, academic and political players provides a fertile ground for fostering an impactful dialogue and expertise sharing. Building and extending the community amongst international and European associations and non-profit organizations is one of the essence of BIAF. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

BIAF is accessible to all type of Associations, Federations, Foundations, Societies, NGOs, Non-Profits and  Universities (from C-level to junior level professionals), BIAF partners and supporters. 

At BIAF, we are discussing the ,how to’ and bring the discussion on international developments to the next level. Moving from the theory, making it practical and sharing real life scenarios that worked and didn’t work for other associations.
