ASAE to Host Executive Leadership Forum

November 16, 2022

WASHINGTON— ASAE announced today it will hold its Executive Leadership Forum 2023 June 4-6, 2023, at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The two-day Executive Leadership Forum is designed as a concentrated learning and networking opportunity for association CEOs and C-suite leaders to explore challenges and opportunities facing their organizations.

“ASAE is excited to bring its 2023 Executive Leadership Forum to beautiful Vancouver,” said ASAE President and CEO Michelle Mason, FASAE, CAE. “ASAE has a long-standing strategic partnership with Destination Canada Business Events, and Vancouver is an ideal location for next year’s conference. We know the association leaders in attendance will find a wealth of inspiration, ideas and connections to bring back to their organizations.”

“Vancouver is pleased to host ASAE’s Executive Leadership Forum in 2023. I attended the Forum this past June in Calgary and it was exactly as billed – a diverse and inspiring group of thought leaders sharing their experiences and insights,” said Royce Chwin, President & CEO, Destination Vancouver.

“With the mountains meeting the ocean, the rainforest meeting the sky, and a walkable, cosmopolitan city in the middle, there are transformative experiences awaiting our visitors in this exceptional West Coast setting,” he continued. “The city inspires us to be equally exceptional to ensure ASAE’s association leaders have memorable experiences when they visit us in Vancouver next year.”

“We are thrilled to welcome ASAE’s Executive Leadership Forum to Vancouver,” said Chantal Sturk-Nadeau, Executive Director of Destination Canada’s Business Events Canada team. “This represents a powerful opportunity to show a global network what makes Vancouver a premier destination and host for international association conferences. Whether it’s the city’s world-leading intellectual capital, extraordinary incentive possibilities or state-of-the-art venues — including the world's first double LEED Platinum certified convention centre — we hope ASAE’s association leaders are inspired to return to Vancouver and Canada to host their own business events.”
