Days at IAMC events are full … full of knowledge sharing and friendship making; full of interactive professional development and collegial networking; and full of both meaningful takeaways and fun.
In short, IAMC Forums are unique in the industry. Here are some need-to-knows to help you achieve your best ROI.
You should have already been assigned an IAMC ambassador. Your ambassador will help you navigate your first forum and help you determine how best to get involved in IAMC. After all, the more you put in to IAMC, the more benefits you will reap.

IAMC networking events are unique in the industry. As one recent attendee put it, you may never attend another event where so many people hug. What you will experience: friendship and camaraderie. What you won’t: business cards and high-pressure sales.
At IAMC we have found that when the relationships come first, the business follows.
The professional development opportunities at IAMC are varied and built around providing immediately useful takeaways. Sessions include paid speakers, member-led workshops and roundtable discussions. Come prepared to ask and answer, learn and share.
IAMC hosts Leadership Seminars in conjunction with IAMC Forums. While there is no cost to IAMC members, separate registration is required and space is limited. Registration typically opens up – and is announced via email – four weeks before each Forum.

Sunday morning and Monday afternoon at forums host a selection of Actives (corporate end-user) only sessions focused on sharing insights and best practices. Sessions include:
Research Roundtable is a regular discussion-based workshop for Active (corporate end-user) member participants on topical corporate real estate issues. Research Roundtables are offered on Sunday mornings at each Professional Forum.
Industry Groups (IGs) are composed of Active (corporate end user) members who work in the same industry or share similar research, education and benchmarking interests. IAMC’s current IGs are Distribution, Food Processing, Health & Science, and Manufacturing. Each Industry Group conducts a separate program on Sunday morning following the Research Roundtable.
Peer-to-Peer Actives: Corporate Real Estate Professionals Talking Business
Active members talk candidly about topics relative to corporate real estate management successes, challenges and strategies for adding greater value. This one-hour discussion-based workshop typically takes place on Monday afternoons.
