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

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our usual Federation Conference, which would have seen over 1,000 Members from all over the world meeting up in Belfast in October 2020.

Instead, we are holding a Virtual Conference over two days, 30-31 October 2020 13.30-17.00 GMT both days. This is an exciting development for us, as the Conference will be live-streamed and will be like watching a television programme.

We will still have the amazing speakers that were lined up, and there will be live Q&A sessions for each speaker. We will also still have Celtic Storm to entertain us after the Change of Insignia as part of the closing ceremony. See the full Conference Programme on the Belfast Virtual Conference Website – https://sigbi.org/belfast2020/programme-timings/.

Registration is now OPEN. All details of how to register are on the Belfast Virtual Conference Website – https://sigbi.org/belfast2020/virtual-conference-registration/. We welcome non-Soroptimists to register for this event. All details are included on the registration page.
