There are many demands on your time and many industry events for regulators and industry to attend. IIC events are different. We are a network of like-minded senior professionals, communicating and supporting one another in challenging roles. The Regional Regulators’ Forum attracts participants from all around the world and we discuss regional issues set against a global backdrop. The meetings are big enough to hear diverse opinions and small enough to enable private networking, intimate meetings, informed collegiate debate and a chance to catch up with colleagues from around the world.

The International and Regional Regulators’ Forum give senior players from National Regulatory Authorities an environment in which they:

  • Gain current information and insights
  • Explore the far-reaching implications of new technology
  • Showcase their regulatory work in a collegiate arena
  • Get validation and constructive feedback on their ideas from international peers
  • Build supportive and strategic relationships
