This year the theme for the congress will be “Interconnected World of Associations”. As the more open, connected and integrated we are, the more opportunities we have for prosperity, freedom and stability. The theme will not only address the issues faced by protectionism policies but will also share the best practices how associations can use their strengths to form worldwide alliances and utilize its global connections to overcome any obstacles. An Interconnected World is the need of the hour as the World population is heading towards 8 Billion by the Year-2022 and in future the businesses will steadily expand into Indian, African & Chinese markets, which is almost 70% of the world population at this point of time. Associations that don’t look overseas are often missing an opportunity to promote their Certifications, Standards, Credentials to communities that are hungry for it.
Globalization in the digital age opens up completely new opportunities – for both people and businesses alike. Today it’s easier and faster than ever to seize upon new ideas from all over the world, benefit from groundbreaking innovations and take a ride on the global information highway. For the same, IAC has invited top experts from different fields to be our esteemed speakers and solicit their support in making the India Association Congress a successful and a one of its kind event.
The future of progressive associations is very bright since they have the capability and strategic focus to adapt, and because no matter what the world looks like in the future, people will still have common interests and challenges to meet. They will still need and want to cultivate relationships, advance their own skill sets, and advocate for better policies on behalf of the industries and professions they represent. It is a fact that associations provide a home for all of those activities and more.
