Annual conference

The event offers school professionals the chance to hear from expert speakers on the key strategic operational issues affecting them and their schools.

In addition to the opportunities for networking and sharing best practice with colleagues at the conference, attendees also benefit from a dedicated exhibition of professional advisers and suppliers to the independent education sector. 

Held in selected locations in the UK, the conference attracts around 500 bursars and senior management staff from member schools, and more than 170 exhibitors every year. 

The 2024 ISBA Conference will take place between 20 and 22 May at ICC Wales.
