Exchange Forum 2012
The Mondo Visione Exchange Forum will take place at The Ironmongers' Hall, in the heart of the city.
The Ironmongers' Hall is the home of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers.
The earliest records suggest that the Ironmongers, then known as Ferroners, were an effective body in 1300, when they took action against the smiths of the Wealds of Kent and Sussex over the quality of iron supplied for the wheels of carts in the City of London. By 1328 they were regarded as a firmly established brotherhood, joining in the elections of the City officials and choosing four of their members to treat with the Mayor and Sheriffs.The Ironmongers' received a grant of arms in 1455, describing them as the "Honourable Crafte and Fellasship of Fraunchised Men of Iromongers", and a charter of incorporation from Edward IV in 1463, which was reconfirmed in 1558, 1560, 1604 and 1687 by various monarchs.
The Company is tenth in order of precedence and is, therefore, one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies.
