Erkki Liikanen, Chair, IFRS Foundation Trustees
IFRS Foundation Conference 2022, London
It is my pleasure to welcome you to this year’s IFRS Foundation Conference, which will be held at the Leonardo Royal Hotel, near London's Tower Bridge, on 23–24 June 2022.
This is our first annual conference at which we’ll be presenting and discussing the work of two standard-setting boards—the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the recently created International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
The event is a unique opportunity for you to receive a comprehensive briefing on the latest developments at the IFRS Foundation. It is also the perfect occasion to engage with representatives of companies that prepare their financial statements in accordance with IFRS Standards, regulators and other stakeholders.
The conference will be a hybrid meeting—so you are invited to attend either in-person or virtually. The programme includes informative talks, interactive seminars and opportunities for networking.
The comprehensive briefing that the conference will provide includes an update from the IASB on its current priorities and its future work plan. You will also get the chance to meet and engage with members of the ISSB, to gain a good understanding of its mission and progress to date.
I will be speaking at the conference, alongside Ashley Alder, Chair of IOSCO; Andreas Barckow, Chair of the IASB; Emmanuel Faber, Chair of the ISSB; and Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chair of the ISSB. We will be joined by several senior technical staff serving both boards, and other IFRS experts from the private sector and regulatory bodies.
You can find more information on the conference programme. After the conference, you will be able to view recordings of the sessions.
On behalf of everyone at the IFRS Foundation, we look forward to seeing you and connecting with you at #IFRSConference22.
