Every year, the SEEP Annual Conference convenes hundreds of development leaders from around the world to inquire, debate, and learn

Our flagship event, the SEEP Annual Conference gathers thought leaders and practitioners dedicated to promoting more inclusive markets and financial systems. The Conference offers a highly interactive platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about shared challenges and opportunities. The agenda is shaped by the conference Advisory Committee -- a team of recognized international development leaders. A rich variety of learning formats highlight practical experience and recognized expertise to maximize engagement:

  • Peer Learning Sessions bring diverse perspectives and experience to critical issues within the four technical tracks 
  • The Innovation Challenge highlights new and experimental approaches
  • Plenaries and Lunch Dialogues feature influential thought leaders and global trends
  • The Training Expo imparts practical skills in proven methodologies and relevant tools
  • SEEP members participate in interactive lunchtime Table Talks and the Annual General Meeting
  • SEEP's communities of practice convene to develop the learning agenda and action items for the year to come

What do our members have to say?

The Annual SEEP conference has been a great place to identify other actors...and has helped us develop connections and partnerships. In some countries, we are collaborating with network partners for project delivery and in some cases have formally partnered to work on projects together.

SEEP events such as the Annual Conference...offer a lot of opportunities for people to network and identify areas for collaboration. The new connections and ideas I get at these events inspire me and make me feel more energized about my work and our collective efforts. 

Last Year's Conference


Last year's theme - Collaboration for Impact - highlighted the capacity of people and organizations to think systemically and design and implement collaborative change processes to realize a level of impact that no one project, sector, or organization can achieve alone.

Together, we convened 440 inclusive development champions from 45 countries representing 180 organizations from a cross-section of academia, research, development, government, civil society, and the private sector. Contributions from SEEP members included 72 member panelists, 69 member organizations participating, and 15 member sponsors.
