The IB Virtual Conference will not be your traditional four-day conference.

Starting 30 November 2020, and extending over a two-week period, you will have the opportunity to engage with education experts, IB staff, peers and exhibitors.

From 30 November - 7 December 2020, we will come together to start the conversation! The virtual platform will be open. Be social! Use this opportunity to connect with other IB educators or ask questions to speakers. We also encourage you to access it and set up your profile, check out the Q&A, resources and explore other available features.

From 8 - 11 December 2020, we will learn together. You will have access to 60+ live and on-demand sessions, and the opportunity to network and discuss with fellow IB educators, IB staff, speakers, presenters and exhibitors.

Until the 12 February 2021, we will build together by reflecting on the conference. You will have access to video recordings of all session and to all resources on the platform.


This will be a truly global experience that will be accessible to all, regardless of time zone. Each of our regions will have one day where sessions will be live from 11am - 3.30pm, local time.

9 December 2020 - Asia-Pacific
10 December 2020 - Africa, Europe, Middle East
11 December 2020 - Americas

All sessions will be made accessible on-demand after the session is finished so participants in all regions will be able to view them.
