2021 Annual Conference

Please plan to join us for our second virtual Conference this May! We will once again gather more than 1,000 international development professionals from around the world to learn, to debate ideas, and to network. We will have keynote addresses, plenary sessions, breakout panels, networking opportunities, workshops, our Lightning Talks and Innovation Contests, sponsor spotlights, an exhibit hall, and more. 

Last year's virtual Conference attracted more than 1,500 people from throughout the United States and 40 countries around the world. You can see a list of the organizations represented here. The conversations in the chats and networking lounges were lively, important connections were made, and we all learned from one another, coming away with a greater sense of what is happening in international development and what needs to be done. Let's continue the discussion together in May!

Stay tuned for many more details to come. Meanwhile, mark your calendars for May 26 and 27 and check out our Annual Conference microsite to learn more!
