Virtual conference


The World Standard-setters Conference took place on 27–28 September 2021. The conference was fully virtual due to the covid-19 pandemic and the continued international travel restrictions.

The conference provided an opportunity for national standard-setters to get an update on and discuss the IFRS Foundation’s activities. The conference offered interactive Q&A sessions—where participants asked presenters questions—panel discussions and virtual networking opportunities with fellow delegates and speakers in chatrooms.   

Participants also had the opportunity to talk to IFRS Foundation staff on both days of the conference in dedicated networking rooms, where they could learn more about the products and services we offer and how to make the most of the new Standards Navigator on

The World Standard-setters Conference is open to all national standard-setters. The International Accounting Standards Board invited three representatives from each jurisdiction’s national standard-setter. 

Recordings of particular sessions are available to view below.
