Forum 2017: An Invitation To Sponsorship

On behalf of the InterAction team, our board of directors, and the global development and humanitarian communities we represent, serve and work with, we are pleased to share information about our marquee annual event, and invite your support as a sponsor.

For more than 25 years, InterAction has hosted the world's most influential and inspiring organizations, thought leaders, and executives from the public, private and NGO sectors at our annual Forum. This 3-day event welcomes an average 1,200 attendees from more than 30 countries, including leadership from global foundations, governments, global industries, the U.N., and national civil society organizations. (Please visit our Forum 2016 site to get an idea about the event.)
