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 in global development.
This year's theme - Building Resilience through Market Systems -highlighted proven and experimental strategies that harness the potential of the market to support people, enterprises and communities that are highly vulnerable to the shock-stress-shock cycle .
Together, we convened 382 inclusive development champions from 50 countries representing 151 organizations from a cross-section of academia, research, development, government, civil society, and the private sector.
“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.”
