IFRS Foundation Conference 2023, London
We are delighted to announce that this year’s IFRS Foundation Conference will take place at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge on 26–27 June 2023.
At the 2023 event, we will showcase our key developments at the IFRS Foundation, highlighting the work of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
In their keynotes, Andreas Barckow, Chair of the IASB, and Emmanuel Faber, Chair of the ISSB, will guide you through an exciting year of global change in standard-setting since the 2022 conference and the roadmap for the next. Linda Mezon-Hutter, Vice-Chair of the IASB, and Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chair of the ISSB, will also give a joint update on developments from each board.
The conference will provide you with rich content, with ISSB and IASB members and technical staff sharing their deep knowledge and expertise on topics ranging from primary financial statements to sustainability-related disclosure requirements. Fifteen breakout sessions will allow you to dive into these projects by asking the experts questions and debating their implications.
The IASB will share insights into its projects looking at how to provide better information in the financial statements, focusing on the statement of profit or loss; goodwill accounting and proposed disclosures on the performance of mergers; an update on its review of the financial instruments accounting standard; and projects designed to support consistent application of IFRS Accounting Standards.
With the ISSB’s first Standards— S1 General Disclosures and S2 General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information—on track for issuance by the end of Q2 2023, this conference will also give you your first opportunity to hear from the ISSB about the standards and their role in a global common language for sustainability disclosures aimed at capital markets.
The success of our hybrid in-person and virtual event in 2022 encouraged us to offer this year’s conference participants both options. The conference will be a wonderful in-person opportunity for accounting and reporting professionals, regulators, investors and other stakeholders to engage with the board members and staff of the IFRS Foundation.
Virtual participation enables you to access the same high-quality content and opportunities to ask us questions from the comfort of your office or home. All the sessions will be recorded, so you can revisit the sessions after the conference on our dedicated conference platform.
We look forward to welcoming you at the IFRS Foundation Conference and connecting with you at #IFRSConference23.
Executive Director, IFRS Foundation
