Pursuant to the objectives of the The International Institute of Forecasters (IIF), we encourage members to speak at forecasting events, and we seek to engage in partnerships with other organizations, associations and academic centers. The IIF will consider collaborations, both commercial (for-profit) and nonprofit, which are in accordance with IIF objectives. The collaboration may occur in organizing, publicizing, and/or implementing the forecasting event.

If you are interested in working with the IIF to co-promote your forecasting activity, contact the IIF Business Director.
