IRF brings people, businesses, countries and organisations together to exchange ideas, define solutions to common problems and forge partnerships that deliver outcomes. Our network of members and partners stretches across all parts of the globe and is expanding every year. This undeniable global presence and convening power enables us to better connect the sector and promote safer, greener, more sustainable road transport and mobility.

As part of its networking activities, IRF organises a series of meetings, conferences and workshops throughout the year and across the globe. These events are often organised in cooperation with other institutions and agencies. They stand out for their level of attendance from representatives of governments, industry and academia. These events offer a range of speaking opportunities to profile your work and offer unique business-to-business and business-to-government networking opportunities.
