Virtual Annual Conference 2020

Embracing change: The new age of IR

In the IR Society’s 40th year, and as companies navigate through these incredibly turbulent and uncertain times, we celebrate the pivotal and increasingly strategic role that IR plays within organisations and how it will be influenced by the current crisis. Alongside keynote addresses, our sessions will look at key themes and mega trends, ESG and stewardship and how to shape your IR programme in a post-COVID world.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all our members and sponsors for your ongoing support. As a member-led, not-for-profit organisation your contributions to our events, professional development and membership fees underpin everything we do to promote excellence in IR, including being able to run our flagship Annual Conference. While this year the conference format might be a little different, we look forward to bringing you the same unrivalled content combining live interactive discussions and on demand sessions with our esteemed guest speakers. You will also have the opportunity to network with peers and visit our exhibitors via our virtual platform throughout the event.

The IR Society Virtual Annual Conference will take place on Tuesday 29th September 2020 - book your early bird ticket now!
