Global Representation

Kellen is unique among U.S.-based association management companies because of our full-service staff in Brussels and Beijing that provide clients with an established, cost-effective presence in the heart of the European and Asian markets.  Clients benefit from our network of business and government contacts throughout the regions, and have direct access to legislative, political, trade, market and other information critical in today’s global economy.  

By working with Kellen experts, associations learn how to increase effectiveness and redefine strategies and best practices in areas such as governance, communications, financial management and benchmarks with ‘best of class’ associations.
