27 - 28 September 2021

Virtual conference

About

The World Standard-setters Conference will take place on 27–28 September. This year’s conference is fully virtual, due to the covid-19 pandemic and the continued international travel restrictions.

The conference provides an opportunity for national standard-setters to get an update on and discuss the IFRS Foundation’s activities. The conference will offer interactive Q&A sessions—where participants can ask presenters questions—panel discussions and virtual networking opportunities with fellow delegates and speakers in a chatroom.   

The World Standard-setters Conference is open to all national standard-setters. The International Accounting Standards Board has invited three representatives from each jurisdiction’s national standard-setter. Invitations for the 2021 WSS conference have been sent out.

Download the preliminary agenda for more information.

Recordings of some sessions will be available to view after the conference.
