What is the Association Challenge about?
The Association Challenge is part of the Northstar Meetings Group Challenge Event Series for agency, corporate and association event buyers. Running for 8 years the challenge event format is proven to create an environment where imagination inspires business and builds partnerships between buyers and event industry suppliers.
The Association Challenge is a modern business forum that brings together association management companies, PCOs and association meeting planners with venues, destinations and specialist suppliers.
It is a unique blend of creative team building and effective networking based on engagement through gamification.
