Host your event at IIED

The Meeting Place at IIED is a welcoming, flexible and creative venue for holding meetings, debates, brainstorming sessions, seminars, training courses, briefings and presentations. We have extensive experience in hosting events. Over the last year many organisations, including Forum for the Future, the Darwin Initiative, the World Resources Institute and Trucost, have made use of our space to hold successful events.
