Definition: Organiser structure


The structure of the organiser is defined by the classic variables which are used to define the nature of any enterprise. In cases where it may be possible to separate the activity of the organiser with respect to congresses from its activities as a whole, information on both should be produced.

Basic Variables:

UIA statistics define a number of characteristics of international organisations, forming the necessary basic statistics on organisers:

\  Identity. Name and headquarters
\  Main activities
\  History, objectives, structure
\  Inter-organisational links
\  Languages used
\  Members by country
\  Employees and turnover
\  Profit/not for profit
\  Mission statement

Of these, it is important to emphasise the classic variables required for each enterprise, defined in the terms formulated in the "Glossary of Business Statistics" [Eurostat, 1997], taking into account a crucial breakdown of certain variables by sector activity.
