Every year, AIESEC International has regional conference to discuss about Exchange and Leadership based on the the region of every entities. Start from two months ago, AIESEC International was held conferences in Singapore for Asia Pacific region, Lebanon for Middle East and North Africa region, Turkey for Western and North America including Central Eastern Europe Region and Colombia for Iberoamerica Region. As the Current Local Committee President, I was attending the biggest XPROs called Euroxpro which is hosted by AIESEC in Izmir, Turkey. EuroXpro being the biggest international AIESEC conference because this conference was combined two big region which is Central Eastern Europe & Western Europe & North America Region. It is a 7 days conference from 10th – 17th April 2013 in Korumar Hotel Delux, Kusadasi, Turkey. The objective itself for this conference is to create a global network partnership, direct interaction with global partner and generating new strategies to create a single move for ther future journeys. Most of participant who came to this conference is Local Committee President or Member Committee Executive Board elect and Current.

In the same day, we also have the pre – opening event called Global Youth Business where we have the chance to meet Junior Chamber International and it was a surprise when they told us about the similarities and partnership that JCI and AIESEC International had. There was also sessions from the an turkish entrepreneur, Turkish airlines, etc. The next day, is the official day of the conference. The agenda was so hectic. We have to wake up before 7 AM and will be finish at 3 AM. But the session delivery was great. Because we have a lot chance to learn from other entities and creating exchange partnership. We also have new insight to develop our current product of exchange and change our leadership mindset as well. Actually, this is my first international conference experience and what I can say is every AIESECers should join international conference of AIESEC. Because they will know and learn from other entities and global partner directly.
