Our events convene prominent corporate leaders, government officials, and academics to address the most pressing economic issues of the day, foster discussion among our community, and educate influential voices on economic policy.

We attract the world’s most promising academic talent and established economic and political influencers. Our annual SIEPR Economic Summit convenes over 500 academic, business, and government leaders to discuss timely issues ranging from the future of work to the repercussions of international diplomacy. Associates Meetings welcome thought leaders to engage in robust discussions with our community. Policy Forums take a deep dive on pressing topics including K-12 education, immigration, and policy priorities for California’s new leadership. Our new series of small-group conversations — launched in the summer of 2020 —allows SIEPR supporters to engage directly with our affiliated faculty in informal discussions of their latest research and policy-relevant endeavors.

Conference Spaces

SIEPR manages a variety of conference spaces, each of which are available to Stanford departments and groups to rent for meetings, seminars, banquets and other approved events. The John A. Cynthia Fry Gunn Building was built in 2010 and features SIEPR's primary event space, the Koret-Taube Conference Center. On the third floor, Dixon and Carol Doll Conference Room 320 provides comfortable space for medium-sized meetings, seminars, retreats, and Zoom meetings.
