AEM regional conference

In 2015, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Africa, Europe, Middle East regional conference will take place from 29 October - 1 November 2015. It will be held at the World Forum, in The Hague, the Netherlands.

The conference will bring together members of the IB community to share and learn from each other’s experiences. It is the ideal forum for discussion between IB coordinators, teachers, external academics, university and government representatives, allowing the community to share their experiences and views on the subject of international education.

The AEM regional conference provides valuable professional development opportunities and the possibility to network and share their experiences. After last year’s event 98.5% of attendees said they would recommend the conference to a colleague.

IB Heads World Conference

For the first time, the IB is holding one global event combining two conferences: this regional conference, and the IB Heads World Conference. They will take place concurrently, at the World Forum.

The IB Heads World Conference is only open to heads of school (the person who leads and supervises the daily operations of the school, ensuring that the policies of the governing body are put into practice  known as a director or principal in some systems) at authorized or candidate IB World Schools.

Each conference will have its own featured speakers, academic programme and social activities, and its own pre-conference, consisting of full-day long workshops. The conferences will share keynote speakers, an exhibition area, welcome reception. 

The IB Heads World Conference closes on Saturday evening but participants are welcome to join the regional conference sessions scheduled for Sunday morning, free of charge.

If you're an IB head of school and would like to register for the Heads World Conference, please visit the conference website. For those wishing to sponsor either event, or to register for the regional conference, please refer to the information below.

Please note: switching between the two conferences is not possible.
