Our Difference

Conway connects world locations with corporate investors through events.

We work closely with our extensive and diverse network of expert FDI consultants and draw on our own market-led research to design and develop relevant and forward-thinking programmes. Staying current on FDI trends is at the heart of what we do.

FDI insights direct from corporate investors shape all our cutting-edge events.

Our flexibility allows each event to be tailored to your particular requirements. Our holistic process means that we will run the event itself, taking care of all logistical and administrative elements, leaving you free to make the most of the business development opportunities.

Every event, no matter the location, is an international event and the perfect occasion for you to meet with corporate investors, peers, and counterparts from across the globe.

We expertly combine each of these aspects to produce training, conferencing, networking and lead generation event experiences that cannot be found elsewhere in the world.

  • "The seminar was very useful from a number of perspectives. Firstly the opportunity to benchmark Virginia's lead generation methods with those of other agencies, secondly, it was helpful to hear from site selection consultants the importance of developing a carefully scripted value proposition, and finally, to listen to a company's perspective regarding how they work with IPA's on a particular site selection."
