The Union of International Associations (UIA) is an organisation that deals with studying the size of the meetings industry in the context of meetings of international associations. Within the UIA activity there is also the publication of the calendar of conferences, as well as the associations database. Organisations, foundations, companies or individual persons interested in the Union of International Association’s activities and its aims, as well as participation in them, may become Union members. What’s more, each year, at the General Meeting, over 250 most active individual members are selected. By presenting them with this international award, their commitment to long-lasting international activity is accentuated.
