Welcome to the Venus International Foundation

Venus International Foundation (VIF) is Passionate and on a Mission on Adding Value to People by Building a Community to Share Knowledge and Create Change.

Venus International Foundation, it is the Legal name and Trade name, the country’s leading Scientific and Industrial Meetings Management Organization. The VIF provides a forum to the appropriate target group by organizing Planned Annual Meetings (Workshop and Awards), with the aim of generating new knowledge and better understanding.

Our world is undergoing a revolutionary period in the creation and dissemination of new knowledge and innovation in many disciplines. Simultaneously humans are on a journey to the achievement of self-actualization, which relates to the ultimate fulfillment of one's potential. The unprecedented levels of discovery and innovation that are the hallmarks of recent decades are giving birth to entirely new meetings, which are in turn stimulating further advances, new opportunities, fresh insights and serve as a 'Continuing Force for Progress'.

The Meetings Industry - Integrating Education and Entertainment

Today, convergence is the new innovation. The emerging millennial professionals are hungry to learn and meet new contacts, which drives personal and professional development.
