Associations Network launches Africa Associations Congress, 8-9 November 2016, Nairobi

Associations Network today announces the launch of a new event for the African association market. The Africa Associations Congress will take place 8-9 November at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya.

Sponsored by the KICC, Hilton and IHG, the congress will cover all areas of member engagement, marketing, events and governance. Day one will feature a conference with breakouts and day two will be a full day of workshops. Other supporters of the event include the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Association Management.

The congress will attract heads of membership organisations from national and regional associations in Africa, pan-African associations and international associations from outside Africa, as well as heads of events, membership organisations, directors, VPs, heads of departments and managers from small to large organisations including professional bodies, trade associations, scientific societies, unions, user groups, forums and councils.

Keynote speaker for the event will be Jeffers Miruka, President of the Africa Society of Association Executives. Other speakers include Duncan Onyango, Director for the East Africa Venture Capital Association and Frederick Owiyo, General Manager of the Chartered Institute of Marketing in Kenya.

Association Network’s Executive Director, Damian Hutt, says: “I'm very pleased to be bringing the Associations Congress series to Africa and our 3,400 members and subscribers of Associations Network. Partnering with the KICC in Nairobi as well as Hilton and IHG, the event is of strategic value to the city and African as a whole. We are pleased to be working with advisors and partners throughout Africa to be providing this critical educational event.

“It was the first conference I ever worked on in 1985 in Kenya, that gave me the events bug and 31 years later, after visiting Africa many times since, I am proud to bring this Associations Congress that I have developed to the continent.”
