The Premier Global IR Event

New in 2017

How is NIRI “Breaking the Mold” at the 2017 Annual Conference? In several ways, including the following new innovative sessions and features you won’t want to miss:
New to NIRI Conference Orientation Session
Come on Sunday at noon to meet other first-time conference attendees and learn what you need to know to optimize your Conference experience.
IR Strategy & Planning: IRO Teach In
A dynamic and interactive two-hour session focused on formulating and executing IR plans and addressing key domains in the practice of IR, including strategy and planning, brand and reputation management, and effective reporting and measurement. This session will focus on formulating and executing IR plans through insights from "fireside chats" with 4 senior IROs who will review their situations, how they planned their strategies for success, what worked and lessons learned.
NIRI Insight Studio
NIRI is teaming up with IR Magazine and Nasdaq to feature brief interviews with notable conference speakers and other VIPs in a news studio setting in the IR Showcase. This will be a great opportunity to meet keynote speakers and hear more insight from them.
Ask the Experts
Participants will have the opportunity to meet with NIRI Fellows and Senior Roundtable members in small, informal groups, with time for Q&A on a wide range of issues. Discuss your most pressing challenges and career development questions.
New Interactive Technology
Many conference sessions will encourage audience participation and feedback through an innovative technology platform that enables crowd-sourced questions and participant live polling.
