Prior to lockdown in March 2020, our IUA market briefings were held at various city locations.  However, we are now holding all presentations remotely and so far, the response has been incredibly encouraging.  Producing remote sessions has allowed us great flexibility on timings to suit both the speakers and indeed our members – many are international and can now participate.

Our agenda of market briefing webinars (or Debinars!) is updated regularly to reflect current market issues and below is a list of forthcoming events that you may like to register and add to your diary now.

Full IUA circulars will be distributed in due course:
if you register from this circular, no need to register again when you receive the Market Briefing circular invitation.
