African Associations Congress Launched in Nairobi by Association Network – 8 and 9 November 2016

The Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi Kenya will play host to the African Associations Congress. The new event for the associations market has been launched by the KICC, IHG and Hilton. The new congress will look to cover member engagement, events and governance, marketing and sales.

The event will feature a mix of conferences and workshops over the two days and will attract heads of membership organisations from national and regional associations in Africa and across the region. The target market include: event planners, heads of events, VPs, directors, professional event organisers, unions, user groups, councils and charities.

Damian Hutt, Executive Director from the Association Network’s said: “I’m very pleased to be bringing the Associations Congress series to Africa and our 3,400 members and subscribers of Associations Network. Partnering with the KICC in Nairobi as well as Hilton and IHG, the event is of strategic value to the city and African as a whole. We are pleased to be working with advisors and partners throughout Africa to be providing this critical educational event. It was the first conference I ever worked on in 1985 in Kenya, that gave me the events bug and 31 years later, after visiting Africa many times since, I am proud to bring this Associations Congress that I have developed to the continent.”
