The organisers of the international knowledge sharing event, Geneva International Association Forum (GIAF), ASSOCIATIONWORLD and Congrex Switzerland have announced that GIAF 2021 is now planned as an in-person live event, 16-17 September at the InterContinental Geneva.
GIAF aims to bring together the Geneva-based and international/European associations and non-profit organisations to provide knowledge transfer, peer-to-peer exchange, the sharing of best practices and design of joint initiatives to tackle common challenges.
The two-day event will be the first international association live event after the lockdowns. Depending on the current international travel restrictions and Covid-19 measures, the vast majority of associations are expected to join from association hubs such as the Geneva metropolitan area and across Switzerland, France and the Benelux.
Kai Troll, spokesperson of GIAF, commented: “We are very much looking forward to finally gathering associations and association leaders back together again to innovate and tackle common challenges. This second edition of GIAF will provide a community building platform for international and European associations and non-profits and will enable us to create a deeper sense of belonging amongst our association industry.”
