IR Magazine Think Tank – West Coast
Exclusively for in-house IRO's

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

el Prado Hotel, Palo Alto, CA

Our unique format

The IR Magazine Think Tank – West Coast will take place on Wednesday, March 20 and is an invitation-only event exclusively for senior IR officers. Our think tanks are free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting today’s IROs.

What makes our format so unique?
Our think tanks are far removed from the traditional conference set-up as the event consists of a series of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select IR issues. These interactive sessions are an opportunity to share experiences with and learn from other top-rated IROs. All table discussions are confidential, and none of the participants’ comments is attributed. This allows attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.

How do our roundtable discussions work?
  Industry experts, top-rated IROs and members of the investment community set the agenda on a panel discussion by sharing their thoughts on session topics.
 Small round tables of IROs discuss these issues face to face.
 Each table gives feedback from its discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.

Holders of the NIRI IRC® certification can earn up to 4 professional development units (PDUs) per day. IRC-certified speakers may also earn PDUs. For more information about the Investor Relations Charter (IRC)®, please visit
