Our Virtual Event ‘The New World’: October 2020

As we are sure you’re aware we had to postpone what would have been our 10 year celebratory Annual Conference which was due to be held in London September 2020. In its place is this virtual event which will run throughout October 2020. We took to decision to make this a free of charge virtual event to help support members during this tough period and to give something back to you in our own small way.

‘The New World’ Conference provides an exciting way to bring our members together. We want ensure that all our members continue to benefit from being able to openly share professional experiences, identify opportunities for new business, and continue to maintain relationships. It is important to make & develop connections during this time of uncertainty. Both Tom Wheeler and Ross Nicholls will be hosting an IR Management Q&A during the conference in which our members can ask anything about our network, memberships and/or events.

You can view the full event schedule HERE and also register for your chosen sessions HERE. We look forward to seeing many of you there.

IR ‘On the Road’ Bangkok: 6th – 10th February 2021

We look forward to returning to Asia in the next of our series of ‘On the Road’ events with a much anticipated visit to Bangkok, Thailand in February 2021. This is a rearranged conference from April 2020 due to the Coronavirus and it is our hope that it will proceed.

The conference will focus on the fantastic inbound and outbound opportunities for members, whilst providing an insight into this fascinating jurisdiction. As usual tickets will be limited, as the ‘On the Road’ events really focus on relationship development, providing quality time for attendees to connect and learn about each other’s practices. There will be a brilliant social program, including; an opening cocktail reception in the 5-star Shangri-La hotel, networking dinner at Sala Rim Naam with Michelin starred chef, Pom Phatchara Pirapak, boat cruise down ‘The River of Kings’ and an optional Palace and Temple tour excursion to really to experience the Bangkok and Thai culture.

Our pre event pack Includes schedule overview, booking link, and how to secure your accommodation at the Shangri-La hotel.

We appreciate that there is still some uncertainty around travel for early 2021, so we have updated our terms & conditions – including our cancellation policy – specifically for the Bangkok conference which can be found HERE. We want to provide confidence and peace of mind surrounding your event ticket for the upcoming conference.
