AMI - June edition. The great pivot.

News /  / 

In this issue of AMI, we reveal the grim toll the pandemic is having on international associations – with almost 20 per cent reporting ‘severe financial difficulties.’ So how can associations ensure they’re in the best shape possible to help rebuild the world after Covid-19? That’s one of the burning questions we explore in this feature-packed June edition. We also hear from associations who have changed the way they do business during lockdown and how one –the American College of Cardiology - converted their flagship annual congress to a virtual event in just 15 days – and ended up attracting 38,000 visitors from 157 countries! On that theme, we explore the pros and cons of online different meeting formats, and give high-level advice on what to think about before going virtual.
