"...undoubtedly the most influential think tank in modern British history." – Andrew Marr
The IEA holds around 100 events a year. These range from formal lectures, to conferences, panel discussions, informal debates and book launches, as well as private lunches and suppers. These events allow us to profile vital and compelling ideas, as well as allowing for high level discussion and debate. Our events attract renowned speakers, such as Nobel Laureates, politicians, journalists and business people.
Our public events are open to anyone to attend. If you would like to be kept up to date with these then please sign up for our free eNewsletter.
We also hold private events, attendance at these is part of our donation package. If you would like to find out more about becoming a donor, please contact Caroline Rollag.
We also work with Marketforce to produce industry conferences in areas such as financial services, PFI/PPP, the energy industry and transport and regulation. The State of the Economy Conference (February) and the IEA's renowned Beesley Lecture series on regulation (September - November) are also produced in association with Marketforce. To find out more about these events, please visit IEA Industry Conferences.
Join us in paying tribute to the late John Blundell, our Director General 1993-2009.
