The request

Professionals from the same field or position need to meet, develop relationships and connections within their network. This is the case for many professionals who attend DII events in order to expand their network and stay close to the ground. The public affairs directors are no exception to this rule and have expressed to DII their need to be informed, to meet and to benefit from networking and exclusive moments. Between information overload and lack of time, an exclusive meeting place for these European decision makers made sense.

DII’s answer

The Global Public Affairs Club (GPAC) launched by DII in 2018 enables the public affairs community to navigate through an evolving profession thanks to an annual membership. Between face-to-face or digital meetings, qualitative content and international networking, DII’s Global Public Affairs Club connects public affairs executives in an exclusive global community. The benefits? Benchmark best practices, anticipate public policy trends, access exclusive events, network, share insights and much more… DII being POLITICO Europe’s sister company, the GPAC grants its members early previews to European trends and regulations as well as exclusive insights from policy professionals. More than 40 public affairs professionals now trust the GPAC to stay ahead of the curve. The adventure has only just begun !
