The health crisis had heavily impacted the way trade associations communicate, convene, engage and operate. The positioning of the sector at the core of the EU policy-making ecosystem means that such changes will be felt far beyond Brussels. EURACTIV recently hosted a panel of leading advocacy practitioners to discuss the effect that the pandemic has had on their industry, and share key takeaways. This debate — the highlights of which you can watch above — was conducted on the backdrop of a survey that EURACTIV carried out this summer to identify new trends, challenges and drivers that will determine the way forward for trade associations.
