IR Magazine Think Tanks are complimentary, invitation-only events for a select group of senior-level IR professionals.
Participant-driven and highly focused, our think tanks embrace an interactive format where you and your peers engage in heated debate over timely topics.
Between three and four industry leaders will introduce the topic before participants break out into small roundtable groups to discuss the issues. Each session concludes with a room-wide discussion.
Switching tables at the start of each session ensures maximum interaction and networking opportunities with all participants.
Attendees are leading IR practitioners, many of whom have been highlighted in our IR Magazine Awards research over the years. Each participant is someone with an established track record and a strategic IR role within his or her company.
