As well as specific events for the FTSE100 community (including deep-dive technical sessions), our FTSE350 and core programme of events cover everything from developments in regulation and company law, to corporate reporting, accounting and governance.

Industry specific events

Our focus on specific sectors and industries provides a closer look at the technicalities impacting those businesses.

Exclusive networking opportunities

Regular and relevant opportunities to meet with your peers and business leaders.

Influencing regulators and policy-makers
