IB Conference of the Americas

Each year the International Baccalaureate hosts the IB Conference of the Americas in a selected city in the Americas. The 2015 IB Conference of the Americas will be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from 23-26 July.

The annual conference provides an opportunity for educational leaders, decision makers and practitioners from schools, universities and governments to come together to share best practices around cultivating the way we educate students. Motivated by the IB mission, the conference fosters partnership and participation, providing a forum for discussions on educational quality, pedagogical leadership and international mindedness.
