A new conference for European association professionals involved in public affairs and advocacy is taking place next month.

The European Conference of Association Public Affairs and Advocacy Professionals, run by ASSOCIATIONWORLD, will bring together association public affairs experts and MEPs with the aim of establishing ‘Europe’s prime platform and knowledge-transfer event in the world’s leading political and institutional hub’.

The first edition of the event will be chaired by Wouter Lox, secretary general of AIJN, the European Fruit Juice Association, who said: “There is a need to bring C-level and junior to mid-level public affairs and advocacy professionals together, to provide knowledge transfer for all levels and to engage into peer-to-peer discussions in two different tracks (C-level and junior/mid-level track). Whether one is a seasoned veteran of public affairs or just starting out in the field, the conference is the perfect opportunity to gain new insights, expand professional network, and stay up to date with the latest trends and best practices in advocacy.”

The conference will cover a broad range of topics, including effective lobbying strategies for associations and non-profits; building coalitions and partnerships to advance policy goals; harnessing the power of data and analytics in advocacy; engaging grassroots supporters and building a strong grassroots network; navigating the changing regulatory landscape in the age of digital advocacy. 

The event is taking place in Brussels, June 29.
