Event Date:

July 22 - 23, 2010 | 11:30 AM EDT

The Aid & International Development Forum (previously International Aid & Trade) has been the world's leading forum for humanitarian relief professionals to cement relationships, build partnerships, gain understanding and share experiences. Since inception, the event has successfully brought together the international humanitarian community - including UN, NGO, governmental and intergovernmental organizations and the private sector - to network and improve coordination and communication, thereby increasing the effectiveness of humanitarian aid response and relief while driving investment towards the suppliers of fundamental and innovative goods and services. For 2010 and beyond, the event will broaden its focus to include development issues.
