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:
Every year, SEEP offers a platform for attendees to connect, engage, and learn more about the challenges and opportunities they face in reducing poverty and strengthening the industry.
“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 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.
