IACCCA focuses on nurturing an environment of friendly exchange through the organisation of a rich and varied programme of activities where members can connect and share their expertise.
We organise two annual member meetings with alternating host organisations: a general assembly each spring and a seminar each autumn. These activities include site visits to other corporate collections and a selection of local artistic venues, as well as workshops and conferences on relevant themes.
Furthermore, IACCCA members regularly receive invitations to participate in international talks, roundtables and panel discussions that shed light on the association and the specific issues we tackle.

While most of our activities are exclusively for IACCCA members, we also organise public symposiums where high-profile speakers from around the world debate on specific topics and reflect on the future challenges and responsibilities that our society faces.
Our first public symposium was held in 2016 on the occasion of IACCCA's tenth anniversary. It took place at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and focused on collaborations between public, corporate and private collections.
The second edition, held in 2018 at the Deutsche Bank in Berlin, Germany, centred on the role and importance of site-specific commissions and art in public spaces.
Our most recent symposium was originally planned for 2020 in Madrid, Spain, but was postponed to 2021 due to the global sanitary crisis.
In order to deepen our knowledge on corporate collections and their specific challenges, we work in task groups. IACCCA has seven such groups, each dedicated to conducting advanced research on one of the following topics:
Under the guidance of a team leader and in small working groups, IACCCA members are invited to share their knowledge and best practices. The results of these task group sessions are distributed among members during our annual meetings and through our private virtual platform.
With a view to developing and increasing our expertise on the responsibilities of corporate collecting and related new practices, we conduct regular surveys among our members. The outcomes of these surveys are made available on our private platform and during our webinars, building on the shared experience of our members.
Our last surveys were the following:
