The Institute for International Research (IIR)

The AAFM supported and had an alliance with the IIR from 2001 till 2009 led by Dr. Mentz.

The Institute for International Research (IIR) is the world’s largest international conference company with 120 different business units and 4,000 employees in 36 countries. Founded in 1973 by Irvine Laidlaw, the current Chairman, IIR continues to provide unbiased, leading-edge business information through our conferences, workshops, seminars, and the Internet.

Realizing that the best way to stay in step with our customers was to create a physical presence in the markets we serve, IIR established The New York office in 1983. Led by Debra Chipman, President of IIR New York and the North American region, the New York Office grew to produce more than 500 conferences, attended by tens of thousands of delegates. .

For the year 2002 and beyond, IIR will continue to expand its role as a trusted and reliable source of essential business information. Only through constant contact with the markets we serve and by maintaining and augmenting our powerful network of resources can we maintain the leadership position we’ve earned and value. We will remain market-driven, relying on the identification of business challenges to develop our events and retain our own competitive advantage enabling you to retain and build your own.
