The goal of GIAF is to bring together the Geneva-based international / European associations and the non-profit community to provide knowledge transfer, to enable peer-to-peer exchange, to share best practices and to design joint initiatives to tackle common challenges, to help achieve better results and greater impact.

GIAF 2021 promotes a ,risk free registration’ and a 100% refund policy related to Covid-19 to all participants in case of the cancellation of the GIAF live event due to Swiss government restrictions, should they come into effect.

“We are very much looking forward to finally gathering associations and association leaders back together again to innovate and tackle common challenges. Experiential learning is now more needed than ever before. This second edition of GIAF will provide a community building platform for international and European associations and non-profits and will enable us to create a deeper sense of belonging amongst our association industry,” says Kai Troll, spokesperson of GIAF.
