to help you expand your knowledge and network
IEN’s mission is to research, design, and produce conferences that empower you with actionable insights and intelligence. Boosting your business results is our main priority.
Through in-depth research, we focus on both your problem areas and your upcoming opportunities, including a “how to get there from here” approach.
Our events are not trade shows. We design them to deliver superior networking through an intimate setting. This allows you to effectively exchange insights with peers about the very latest information and opportunities.
We focus on niche topic areas that give you valuable take-aways, helping you achieve that next breakthrough and turbo-charge your competitive game.
What can you expect from an IEN conference?
“Great mix of topics and demonstrated expertise offering actionable tips."
“Very knowledgeable speakers and networking among the attendees was amazing.”
“The format allowed for more information to be shared and candid conversations about lessons learned and shared issues.”
"Great mix of interesting speakers, and panels from a diverse mix of companies and industries. The pace was quick and informative, and I learned at least 1 interesting takeaway in each session."
Insight Exchange Network is led by our founder Lori Medlen, who has over 25 years of experience in conference production and management. After 14 years of being Founder and Owner of Financial Research Associates, Healthcare Education Associates, and the RISE Association, Lori sold the conference companies in 2015. Shortly after, with her entrepreneurial drive ablaze, Lori founded IEN. Now, we are “Full speed ahead!” with Lori’s drive and focus at our backs.
Lori’s favorite part about conference production is the topic development and research. She leads our IEN Team in digging deeper and getting creative in order to put together the best conferences possible.
The IEN home base is in beautiful Santa Cruz, California. The creative atmosphere of our city provides a great backdrop for our work – not to mention the inspiration of the Pacific Coast. Many from our dedicated and passionate team hail from other parts of the USA.
