About Economist Intelligence Corporate Network

Who we are

The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network is membership-based executive event, research, and advisory division of The Economist Group. We are an invitation-only membership based group that leverages the convening power of The Economist brand to bring together leaders from industry, government and academia to discuss the key trends shaping regional economies and the managerial responses to those changes.

EICN provides insights into macroeconomic and business trends via senior-level events, high-caliber research and executive briefing sessions.

Our events

The Corporate Network hosts approximately 16 events per city annually. With nine cities in the Network that means 144 events over the course of a year where your senior executives can attend, network and share views.

Start a dialogue and build relationships with an engaged audience of influential decision-makers and opinion leaders. Across our nine networks, EICN has over 2,400 individual members from across 500+ of the world’s most important organisations.

Brand awareness and visibility

Showcase your expertise by taking advantage of speaking opportunities in our plenary events or by engaging in our closed-door CxO sessions, which are well-attended by the region’s leading senior business leaders.

EICN members also receive a complementary annual briefing, which you can utilise by bringing in one of our senior editors as a keynote speaker to provide macro context to client engagement events.

Corporate Network also offers the opportunity to sponsor any of our on-calendar events, or to create a bespoke event programme to increase the visibility of your company throughout the region.

Businesses also have the opportunity to sponsor our research. EICN regularly survey’s C-suite leaders on their take on current trends, economic and political events and how they expect the business environment will evolve over the short to medium-term.
