Local IAI Branches

There are regular IAI branch meetings across the UK, Ireland and Wales, as well as meetings in Hong Kong and the GCC. 

Each IAI meeting includes a CPD seminar delivered by a technical expert, covering a range of topics from access control and pocket door systems to fire door regulation and social media.

Branches also organise presentations from companies outside of the architectural ironmongery sector such as test facilities, building control and door manufacturers, to help ironmongers have a well-rounded knowledge of the whole industry.

Non-members can attend two of these meetings for free to get an insight in what the Institute has to offer.
