Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland Conferences!

Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) hold an annual conference, which is attended by approximiately 1,200 members plus their guests, from each of the 29 countries in the Federation.

It’s a time to meet friends old and new, and to listen to inspiring speakers.  Reports from each Conference are added to the Conference website as soon as possible after the event.  You can read reports from the last Conferences or see what is coming up at the next Conference by clicking on the links at the left-hand side.  The year of the Conference is shown along with the location.

Belfast SIGBI Conference 2020

Here are a few reasons to attend our Federation conference:

  1. Educational opportunities.  No matter how experienced you are, everyone can learn.  We can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results.  The educational aspect of a conference can never be undervalued.  You will hear women speakers talk to you about how ‘they stand up for women’ and the opportunities that are there for us to do more.
  2. Networking with members.  Federation conferences provide a great opportunity to network.  Often members from other Regions, National Associations and Countries can become valuable resources for joint working and best-practices.
  3. Have fun.  Taking an extra day at the beginning or end of the trip to explore or visit friends in the area is a great way to maximise the investment in travel.  Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people!
  4. Visiting a new place. Attending conference allows you to discover a new place or city where the conference is being held and learn about its people and culture.
