The importance of physical events – VIPA Int’l ‎Annual Report 2021-22

20th December 2022

VIPA Int’l has published its 2021-22 Annual Report informing about the association achievements in 2021 and 2022 and how we promoted the VIP sector. This year’s Annual Report presents an overview of VIPA International’s activities since the General Assembly last year. The activities carried out during this period could not have been possible without the support of the VIPA Int’l Board and the active contribution of VIPA Int’l members across the association’s working groups.

Sebastian Baars, VIPA Int’l President and CEO of Vaku Isotherm, said: “I don’t think I’m alone when saying that two years of working from home made me realise the importance of physical events. When I travelled to London in April to participate in IVIS, I could feel the VIP sector was deeply connected again. At this year’s IVIS, I had the opportunity to speak with VIPA members, other companies, institutes and universities. When joining IVIS, you really get a good understanding of what’s going on in our sector. All the presentations give you up to date information, which is pertinent, inspiring and something we all love about IVIS. Our sponsorship of IVIS is vital and I am looking forward to the next IVIS in India”.

Next years IVIS will take place in Chennai in India from 6 – 7 November 2023, and you can read more about the symposium in the annual report.

The 2021-22 annual report was released alongside the VIPA Int’l General Assembly on 9 November 2022, held virtually ‎for the third year in a row in respect of peoples busy end of the year calendars. The General Assembly reviewed ‎the activities from the past 12 months, approved the association finances and re-elected ‎members of the Board. Sebastian Baars was also re-elected to continue as the President of the association.

The VIPA Int’l secretariat would like to thank its members for their support. Enjoy this annual report and we hope to meet you soon either in person or virtually in 2023.
