About IQ forums and the organizer
After many years in the business, the IQ Forum brand has become a key player in the field, and organized a number of big-profile conferences in many cities, attracting the most respectful speakers, politicians, companies, municipalities, ministries, investors, all FEZ (free economic zone) and others closely related with business organizations. This is not the only significant advantage of our conferences – we are also a large media group. As a result, we advertise the event using a lot of different media channels including creating a special edition magazine dedicated to the IQ forums. This distinguishes us from other organizers, and the value we create makes a huge difference.
