Thursday, June 9

So now you have data and comparative benchmarks, how can you accelerate learning and apply them by adapting or changing strategy? Three key themes addressed by the Index and crucial for global growth success will be explored through peer to peer interactive discussions.


  • Building an Attractive Value Proposition
    How is value perceived by customers and members outside the USA? Review the critical importance of creating tangible benefits, products and programs that provide measurable results and are adapted to the needs of local markets.  

  • Market Development Strategies
    Local relevance is key to global growth.  How are associations delivering local relevance and higher ROI to their  international members and customers located outside of the USA and what local social media and communications channels bring the best results  


  • Global Connections Lunch & Workshop
    Explore the economic and market opportunities for your global growth with our Destination Partners


  • Customer & Member Engagement Models
    Where does your association lie according to our Engagement Model, and what about individual customer/member segments?  Evaluate relevant touchpoints that define your member/customer experience and what is working or not.
