Our 2021 Annual Conference was our chance to finally celebrate what would have been our 10-year business anniversary (in our 11th year post pandemic.) This was a truly ambitious event and we were overjoyed to have 225 attendees join us from across 66 Jurisdictions.
11 years ago we launched IR with a vision to create a powerful collective of like-minded individuals. At this event, we wanted to share with you our vision for the next 10 years and what we can achieve together. This first ‘face to face’ meeting back was a brilliant opportunity for all our attendees to connect with fellow IR members who can advise a wide range of clients on their cross-border & domestic needs.
As usual we incorporated a wide variety of social and professional networking opportunities. The social events consisted of a walking tour around glorious London, opening drinks reception, luxury networking dinner at the historic Guildhall & closing drinks reception on Tuesday afternoon at our conference venue, Central Hall Westminster. For our professional program there was open networking, high quality speakers, networking tables alongside numerous practice area breakout sessions and workshops.
The theme of this year’s event was ‘The Future is Now’ where we offered content on transitioning your firm to the future and a focus on generational integration in the workplace. We also included numerous social events & networking time to ensure we could also celebrate the group evolving together through and now beyond the pandemic.
