About AC Forum
What is AC Forum?
The Associations Conference Forum (AC Forum) is Europe’s only networking platform established exclusively for and by associations with salaried staff and organising congresses in-house.
AC Forum provides a platform for exchange of knowledge, expertise and experiences amongst association peers facing comparable challenges in the association and congress industry.
Most members stem from the health field, but membership is open to associations in various disciplines.
