New date confirmed for association forum in Brussels

A new date has been set for the inaugural Brussels International Association Forum (BIAF).

The event will take place at Maison de la Poste, Tour & Taxis Venues, Brussels, 14-15 March 2022, having been scuppered by Omicron and renewed concern about the spread of coronavirus.

Delegates who had purchased tickets for the original date (December 7-8) can either transfer their fee to the new date or receive a full refund.

Kai Troll, President of ASSOCIATIONWORLD .,the association movement and platform organizing BIAF, said: “A large number of delegates raised concerns about attending public in-door events given the current COVID-19 climate in Belgium. Many associations have issued new internal guidelines that changed people’s behaviour in the last two weeks.

“The true value of BIAF lays in the workshops, peer-to-peer exchange, in-person networking and the experiential learning experience. BIAF is not a commercial event as such and we had to listen to our community. We felt, that it was therefore most appropriate and sensible at this moment in time, to move BIAF into spring. We are thankful to the attendees, of which 92 per cent of them have chosen to transfer their ticket to the March event”.

Between now and the end of February, BIAF will run two complementary online sessions in preparation to the March event to allow delegates to discuss topics and connect prior to the event.
