The conference will draw from the experience of nearly 1,500 IB World Schools and schools seeking authorization to offer IB programmes in North, Central and South America.
This year’s theme, New Thinking for a New World, reflects the exciting changes and challenges facing the IB Americas community as it draws together the resources from the former IB Latin America and North America regions. There will be speeches available in English, French and Spanish as well as a number of bilingual elements throughout the conference program.
Come and experience the only walled city in the Americas, a truly unique destination. Québec City, which just celebrated its 400th anniversary, will surprise and charm you with its European style and rich history.
