IBConference is the oldest conference, celebrating its 20th anniversary, organized by the students from the Sauder School of Business at UBC. The conference is founded on a belief in the importance of an international perspective for every business-minded individual. Over its lifetime, the conference has established itself as a must-attend event for both students and business professionals due to its phenomenal speakers who provide the up-to-date knowledge and insights about trends in the global economy.

For its 20th anniversary, IBConference will focus on the G20: the Future of Change, communicating the future of three of the most dynamic countries of the G20 - European Union, Asia, and USA. With two keynote speakers and a debate, IBConference will explore the changes these economies will be facing and their affect on the future.
