The International Institute of Forecasters (IIF) seeks to stimulate the creation, distribution, and application of knowledge on forecasting. In furtherance of these objectives, the IIF (1) encourages its individual members to speak at forecasting events and (2) seeks to engage in joint ventures with other organizations.

The IIF will consider joint ventures with other organizations, both commercial (for-profit) and non-commercial (not-for-profit), insofar as such collaborations 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 event, research or activity, please contact the IIF Business Director.
