International and European Association Awards shortlist announced

The ceremony and gala dinner will be held at the HOFBURG Vienna on Wednesday, May 3

Heike Mahmoud, Director of the Berlin Convention Office presents the CEO of the Year 2016 award to Grégoire Pavillon, Executive Director of the European Association for the Study of the Liver.

The shortlist for the 2017 International and European Association Awards has been unveiled.

A total of 27 associations and individuals across nine categories are in the running for a gong at the awards, which will take place during Associations World Congress, in May this year.

The awards recognise excellence in association management and leadership, and will take place at the grand imperial palace of the HOFBURG Vienna, on Wednesday, May 3.

Organised by the Association of Association Executives (AAE), the free-to-enter awards encourages associations to share best practice with their peers and is not sponsor-driven.

AAE executive director, Damian Hutt, said: “Our awards are focused on shining a light on good practice, applauding initiative and creativity and sharing success stories with peers so that associations can develop and learn from each other. We have had a great response to the awards this year and are looking forward to a special evening of celebration at our gala dinner in Vienna.”
