Trade associations, chambers of commerce and industry, professional societies, cooperatives, and other member-based organizations all undertake outstanding programs and initiatives for their members and key stakeholders. A panel of speakers representing various sectors of the association community will showcase their outstanding projects and best practices that inspire and merit recognition and replication.
Associations enter into partnerships, alliances and joint undertakings to do more activities and programs for the benefit of their members and key stakeholders. A panel of speakers from the association community will share their stories on outstanding projects and best practices that they collaborated successfully with others.
Sustainability for associations in this context means two things – (1) business continuity as a long-term, cause-oriented organization and (2) their contribution to social, economic, and environmental development. A panel of speakers from different association sectors will share their stories on outstanding projects and best practices that they are doing in both areas.
In the past, associations are built around simple dues-paying membership models. Fast forward today, there are other models for associations – from online to customized ones. Be updated on what association models are emerging from around the world.

3 to 4 sponsors occupy a space (“stall”) in the ballroom and present directly to interested participants who will approach the sponsor’s “stall.” Sponsors should present 15-minute topics that are relevant to the AS6 theme and not just market their products. A gong/bell will be sounded for the participants to switch to other stalls to ensure that all sponsors will have a chance to present.
