A brief history of IIR
IIR was founded as a newsletter company in 1973, in New York. In 1978 IIR entered the conference business in the UK. In the wake of the success of the first two events, the focus of IIR rapidly switched to conferences.
By 1986 there were 7 conference offices, and continued its expansion in Europe, Scandinavia, North and South America, Africa, the Middle East and Australia. IIR extended its profile with organising exhibitions, then entered the training business. This double-edged expansion method has continued throughout the 1990's and early 2000s to create a large portfolio including the Monaco Yacht Show and IPEC.
The first office in Eastern Europe opened in 1992 in Austria, then, in response to the growing market demands new offices opened in the Czech Republic, in Poland and in Hungary.
Growth, both organic and through acquisitions, has been constant and considerable, and has led to the current total of 45 companies and 116 offices - the broadest international spread of any company of its kind. For the last decade, IIR has grown by a minimum of 15% annually.
„For over 30 years IIR has been a leader in the provision of business knowledge and skills. This has been achieved through our enterprising, profit-focused company culture and through an unwavering dedication to the provision of timely and practical knowledge and proven skills. (...) It would not be possible to describe IIR's success without referring to people - our valued customers, our dedicated associates and our exceptional speakers, trainers and consultants. I thank you all for your continued support.”
