The IMP Group annually hosts two types of conferences with an interactive view on the business landscape as a common denominator. The IMP Conference, which was organised for the first time in Manchester 1984, is now the largest in the world dealing specifically with marketing, purchasing and technological development in a business-to-business context. The style of the IMP conference is always informal. It is structured to maximise the amount and level of discussion and interaction among researchers at all stages of their career, the conference urges participants to present their findings in a challenging but supportive atmosphere. Authors are invited to present results from research at any stage of development. Since early 2000 the IMP Conference has been combined with a Doctorial Consortium, which aims to bring together young and established IMP researchers for knowledge exchange.

The IMP Journal Seminar has been organised annually since 2004 and focuses on theoretical and methodological consideration of network studies aimed to be published in the IMP Journal.
