What UIA Does for the Meetings Industry

In its earliest work the UIA quickly recognized the importance of international meetings and congresses to international association life. This recognition has led to a decades long engagement with what is now known as the meetings industry. UIA also initiated the first international meetings of this industry, which led to the creation of a number of trade groups such as AIPC, AIIC, AITC and IAPCO.

UIA currently offers collaboration and partnership with entities in the meetings industry in the format of an Associate Membership. The main focus of this collaboration is promoting the networking between association and industry bodies.
