Network with other IRI members at our Virtual Fall Networks Conference
For the first time ever IRI is turning its Fall Networks Conference into an online event! IRI’s Networks bring practitioners together to explore member-chosen topics through a combination of peer presentations, interactive roundtables, guest speakers, and workshops. Sessions are designed to be highly interactive and encourage participation from all in attendance. Webinar sessions will be open to all registered conference attendees, while roundtable discussions will be limited to Network Members. Attendees will have the opportunity to share pain points and troubleshoot with their peers, allowing them to easily digest valuable insights with specific steps and strategies in hand.
The Fall Networks Conference will convene virtually September 14-18, 2020. These free virtual sessions will be a blend of webinars, interactive roundtable discussions, and organized networking activities, and exclusive to IRI members.
