THE American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) will bring its Great Ideas Conference to Asia next year.
Hong Kong has been chosen as the venue for the Washingon DC-based association’s first-ever Asian conference, which will see 150 to 200 association management practitioners from Asia-Pacific gathering.
ASAE's Great Ideas Conference tackles creative approaches to everyday issues in association management and is traditionally held in the US. Orlando, Florida is scheduled to host it in March 2015.
Emy Chavez, president of Philipine Council for the Advancement of Association Executives (PCAAE), which is on the ASAE advisory board for the Great Ideas Conference 2015, said the upcoming Asia conference is a pilot event that could become annual if successful.
PCAAE will aim to host the 2016 conference if so, said Chavez.
