To achieve its mission the ADC Forum has developed an integrated model of high-impact events, leadership roundtables, industry and segment specific initiatives, a research program and a series of leadership awards.

ADC Forum initiatives are renowned for attracting high calibre participants, engendering frank and constructive sharing of views, and generating quality ideas and courses of action. In order to ensure the right level of involvement and engagement, the inclusion of disruptive thinking, diversity and integration, the Chatham House Rule will apply to key and critical elements of the program.
