As Inya Institute is a Yangon-based organization, it is in a great position to offer its services for helping to organize conferences, seminars, and workshops. Because the issue of logistics can be particularly complex in Yangon, the institute facilitates the renting of space, the hotel room booking, the catering, and any other issues too difficult to handle from overseas.

If you represent an international university, a higher-education institution, an international aid or cultural organization and be interested in organizing such events in Yangon, please feel free to contact at: contact@inyainstitute.org
