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 meetings among members 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 dedicated to relevant themes.
Furthermore, IACCCA members regularly receive invitations to participate in international talks, roundtables and panel discussions shedding light on the association and the specific issues we tackle.

While most of our activities are exclusively for IACCCA members, we also organise public symposia where high-profile speakers from around the world debate on specific topics and reflect on the future challenges and responsibilities of our society.
Our first public symposium held in 2016 on the occasion of IACCCA's tenth anniversary at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, focused on collaborations between public, corporate and private collections.
Our second edition held in 2018 at the Deutsche Bank in Berlin, Germany, centered on the role and importance of site-specific commissions and art in public spaces.
Our third symposium was originally planned for 2020 in Madrid, but has since been postponed to 19th November 2021 due to the global sanitary crisis.
To deepen our knowledge on corporate collections and their specific challenges, we work in task groups. IACCCA has seven such groups, each dedicated to doing 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 groups are distributed amongst members during our annual meetings and through our private virtual platform.
To develop and increase our expertise on the responsibilities of corporate collecting and related new practices, we conduct regular surveys amongst our members. The outcomes of these surveys are communicated on our private platform and during webinars, building on the shared experience of our members.
Our last surveys are the following:
