InsideNGO’s 2015 Annual Conference

Raptim Humanitarian Travel has successfully concluded another year of participation at the InsideNGO Annual Conference held in Washington, DC, July 28 – 30, 2015. The InsideNGO Annual Conference is an exclusive, members-only event. It is one of the largest gatherings of professionals in the international relief and development NGO community. Raptim has participated as an exhibitor for 7 consecutive years.

“We are impressed with the year over year growth this conference experiences. InsideNGO is constantly looking for ways to make the annual meeting better for its members and exhibitors,” says Kim Tiberia, Senior Business Development Manager. “This event is a great platform for Raptim to meet with its existing NGO clients and make connections with those with whom we want to partner with,” Tiberia explains.

“In the vision of Raptim Humanitarian Travel, we always aim to create added value for the community of humanitarian travelers.”

Bart Kruijsen, Raptim CEO

"Raptim's vision entails creating added value for the community of humanitarian travelers," explains Bart Kruijsen, Raptim's CEO. "By participating in the dialogue of our partners, we are able to create this added value by focusing on the topics that matter to them. It is a privilege to interact and learn from so many like-minded people at  the InsideNGO conference. We share the same compassion and dedication allowing us to apply our efforts and expertise where needed most."

This year Raptim made a commitment to our strong partnership with InsideNGO by becoming an Industry Partner. We are now part of a select group of organizations that must qualify as Industry Partners with InsideNGO and its members.

“We thoroughly enjoy working with Raptim and having them as a new Industry Partner.” states Elizabeth Heald, Member Services, InsideNGO.

Raptim has already begun planning for next year’s Annual Meeting which will be held July 12 – 14, 2016.
