Conway is a worldclass organizer of economic development events. Our event division has organized specialized economic development events for more than five decades, bringing together foreign investors and the Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) and Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) that serve them.
Each Conway event has its own specific purpose, but common to all is the objective of facilitating economic development and FDI through knowledge gained from first-class, corporate-led programs, networking and peer-to-peer shared best practices. These events result in experiences and connections that cannot be matched elsewhere. In total, Conway has organized events in more than 100 cities internationally, connecting businesses, governments, and people from around the world.

This forum brings together corporate executives, site consultants, IPAs / EDOs, service providers, and government officials from more than 40 countries around the globe to network and forge lasting relationships. Come discuss best practices and trends on corporate investment strategies and expansion opportunities. This year's World Forum for FDI will be held in Vancouver, Canada from June 15th - 17th!
Africa Trade and FDI Conference

Under the main theme ‘Driving Trade and Unleashing Investment for Next Generation Africa’ the conference will explore the next phase of Africa’s growth and economic development as well as address the challenges faced on the ground.
FDI Training Seminars
Based on global best practices, each seminar heralds new ideas in marketing, attracting and increasing foreign direct investment in your location. Confer with expert consultants, compare tools and performance, and gauge your understanding of corporate investors' decision-making processes. This is an intimate FDI exchange on how you can improve your performance all around.
Conway can organize custom events for your location, resulting in network connections, publicity, and new investment opportunities. We take an holistic approach to event planning, meaning that we manage the event itself, taking care of all logistical and organizational elements, leaving you free to make the most of the business development opportunities.
