  • Association success story sessions – 20 associations shortlisted for the Association Awards will share and discuss their case study projects the afternoon before the awards, on 3 May.
  • Conference and Events – Focusing on growth and development strategies and the process for events from design to delivery. A particular highlight of this stream will be the Neuroscience and Neuromarketing topic from the Neuromarketing Science and Business Association.

Each month associations are launching video channels/offerings (unrelated to event recordings) and this stream helps guide them on creation, planning and how to fund them.
  • Member Engagement – A whole day of digital related content looking at member engagement strategies, CRM and MRM, successful online communities and tribal marketing
