In Vienna’s Second District, close to the famous Prater and the University of Economics and Business, magdas Hotel is located. What’s special about this hotel is that it is a social business, opened with the aim of creating jobs for as many refugees as possible.

“Staying relevant”, “ensuring continuation” is what most association leaders will answer when asked about the major challenges facing associations today. Motivating young people to take an active part in non-profit life seems to become more and more difficut. Board positions tend to be filled with the usual suspects, who are still willing and able to shoulder the workload. But when even these veterans retire from association leadership, they leave big shoes to fill.

When we attend a congress as delegates, everything is ready for us. The venue has been beautifully decorated, sessions await our attendance and refreshments are being served. Our colleagues, adorned with name badges and equipped with information brochures, are already strolling through the meticulously constructed exhibition. As participants, we often forget that scientific congresses of a certain size need years of preparation. So today, we’d like to share with you the story of the FECAVA Eurocongress 2016.


In June 2016 we have exactly two years left until EuroPerio9 – Europe’s largest dental meeting – will take place in Amsterdam.

An industry meeting two years before the congress traditionally kicks off the planning process. At this meeting, the organisers meet with the most important industry supporters.


A Chinese curse made famous by John F. Kennedy says “May you live in interesting times.” There is no denying that we are indeed living in interesting times. However, it would be a mistake to see this purely as a curse. The real challenge is to find growth in adversity. The challenges of the meetings industry often mirror those of the globalized world: Digitalization, the threat of global terror, compliance regulations, tax reform, the sharing economy – a rapidly changing world that seems to be turning faster each day. 


The Danish capital of Copenhagen is a city that is justly famous for its arty flair and creative atmosphere and that has been driving a flourishing, now world-renowned design movement.
