Corporate Membership

Executive Corporate Membership

Corporate membership gives institutions, both government and private, a thorough understanding of geopolitical risks to support decision-making and operations.

This category is intended for leading global companies and institutions who seek a close relationship with the IISS and the visibility of such an association. Central to this is involvement at two of the Institute’s three flagship international events held annually, which draw top-level decision makers and corporate leaders.

Executive Corporate Membership is suitable for global players seeking to network on the highest level with governments, business leaders and other global corporations. It also includes priority access to the Institute’s staff through private, bespoke briefings on security, foreign policy, political, economic, commercial and technological issues.
