Online delegate search

Online delegate search – will be available to all registered delegates from Friday 26 August. Full downloadable delegate lists are not available and the IBA does not circulate hard copy list of participants in advance of the conference. To search for registered delegates using the online search facility, one out of the three search criteria options must be entered.

Registered delegates will also have access to the IBA conference app, available on smartphones and tablets, to search through an up-to-date directory of delegates, view their contact information, discover the location and times of speakers’ sessions and send personal messages to other conference delegates.
