Overview

It was great spending some memorable days together in the vibrant city of Chicago. This IR ‘On the Road’ Americas event was a sold out event, attended by over 150 members coming from 60+ jurisdictions around the world (including members from 30+ US states).


The conference incorporated an extensive professional programme, in which we launched our inaugural speed networking session, had working lunches on topics from practice management, cyber security, to cannabis law. We also hosted numerous practice area break-out sessions and high profile speakers.

Socially, there was a variety of events including the opening drinks reception, member hosted dinners and a walking tour of the city prior to the event. The gala networking dinner was hosted at the Art Institute of Chicago and we also shared a memorable afternoon boat cruise together on the Friday. Attendees staying over the weekend, also had the opportunity to join us for a crime & mob tour of the city and a trip to the 360 observation deck and ‘Tilt’ experience.

Within the post event pack, you will find details of all presentations, along with links to photos and video galleries. If you would like a high-resolution copy of any image, please let us know and we will happily send it on to you.

Our final event for 2019 is our Annual Conference in Amsterdam 26th–29th October, we hope to see many of you there. This is our largest event of the year and one not to be missed. Tickets are also now on sale for our first event of 2020 in Miami. This will again be limited to just 150 tickets, so please inform us if you wish to attend ASAP to avoid missing out. Please contact events@irglobal.com to ensure your tickets are reserved.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Yours sincerely
