Are you interested in becoming a member of our globally known industry association? This page provides you with in-depth information on what it takes to join our association.
Following submission, your application is going to be presented to our Board (in case of manufacturers not yet members of Eurovent) or Commission (in case of associations). Once approved, you are going to receive a dedicated membership package and Extranet login.
Membership types and contributions
Eurovent’s contributions are clear, straightforward and transparent. They vary according to our three different contributing membership types. The number of votes is never related to organisation sizes, country sizes, or membership contribution levels.
The annual contribution for Member Associations contains a fixed contribution of 4.000,00 EUR that applies to each Member, plus a variable contribution that takes into account the economic size of a country and is defined as follows:
- Each year, the Eurovent General Assembly defines a membership contribution budget, which, in 2018, was 261.020,00 EUR.
- From this contribution budget, the total fixed contributions of all Members are deducted, leading, in 2018, to a projected variable contribution of 193.020,00 EUR.
- Each Member covers a share of this contribution based on the level of GDP of their country in relation to the other European countries.
- The GDP figures used for the calculation are those published by Eurostat and relate to the GDP from three years ago. That is, the 2018 variable contribution was calculated on the basis of the 2015 GDP.
- The contributions for new Members are calculated proportionally.
Following this logic, in 2018 the Spanish Members of Eurovent contributed 17.246,00 EUR and Italy 23.727,00 EUR.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Team to receive information on the precise amount for your country.
Affiliated Manufacturers do not directly participate in Eurovent activities, have no access to the Eurovent Extranet and hence do not pay any contributions. Their representation and contribution are covered by the national Member Association.
