Designed to Help You See Around the Corner and Maximize Your Impact

The world of IR and the capital markets ecosystem is changing rapidly and dramatically. The NIRI Annual Conference will help you navigate this drastically different landscape and stay ahead of the curve. NIRI18 will deliver actionable takeaways and critical insights from leading industry professionals in the general and concurrent education sessions, as well as opportunities throughout the conference to address your unique challenges and create your own learning experience.



General Sessions

The capital markets are shifting, the tools IR professionals use to communicate with investors are rapidly evolving, and demands for accountability, transparency, and disclosure from increasingly active investors are forcing IR professionals to consider new perspectives and strategies. You'll hear from leading industry experts in the General Sessions on the key topics that are shaping the future of IR.

Education Tracks

The concurrent sessions have been designed around the 10 domains of the IR Competency Framework and organized into four main content tracks.

Spaces and Experiences

In addition to dozens of educational sessions, explore the additional spaces and experiences that will help you connect with your peers, discover solutions you can implement in your own IR practice, and ensure you are putting your best face forward.

IR Showcase

NIRI's IR Services Showcase features more than 70 exhibits from the most respected companies in the industry showcasing the products and services that can make your job easier. Explore the products available, view live demos, and meet leading service providers who can partner with you and amplify the capabilities of your IR program.


Career Development Hub

The new Career Development Hub is a unique opportunity for IR professionals of all career levels to interact with IR experts in a dedicated space designed to encourage and facilitate networking and reflection around various career trajectories and alternative pathways to professional success. The Hub will feature short talks, informal workshops, and mentoring sessions to provide additional career development opportunities outside of the traditional conference space.

Headshot Lounge

In between product demos, workshops, and networking breaks, be sure to stop by the Headshop Lounge. New to NIRI this year, conference attendees can sit for a professional makeup session and a headshot by an expert portrait photographer.


IRC® Lounge

Stop by the IRC Lounge to learn all you need to know about NIRI's Investor Relations Charter (IRC®). Do you plan on sitting for the IRC exam this year and have questions on how to prepare? Are you already an IRC credential holder and need guidance on maintaining your credential? The IRC Lounge will offer plenty of opportunities to get information in an informal setting.



Sharing experiences and best practices with your peers and growing your IR network are key reasons to attend #NIRI18.

Industry Breakouts

The Industry Breakouts provide a relaxed setting to meet and network with your industry peers to discuss hot topics and trends affecting your industry.

Evening Receptions
