IFRS® Foundation Conference: Frankfurt 2018


27 - 28 June 2019


Letter from Hans Hoogervorst, Chair, IASB

I am pleased to announce that the IFRS Foundation’s annual conference in Europe will be held at the InterContinental Hotel in Frankfurt on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 June 2018. We have created a comprehensive programme.

Members of the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) will join leaders in financial reporting from the private sector and regulatory bodies, as well as accounting professionals and others with an interest in IFRS Standards.

The event will provide unique insight into standard-setting projects and enable those present to hear about the future of financial reporting, directly from the people who set our Standards.

  • We will be offering pre-conference workshops, including:
  • Investor-focused IFRS Standards update;
  • Foundations of new Standards;
  • Effects of IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts; and
  • Making disclosure more meaningful.

I will be speaking at the conference, as will Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chair of the Board, Board members— Nick Anderson, Martin Edelmann, Françoise Flores, Ann Tarca and Mary Tokar—a number of the Board’s senior technical staff, and other IFRS experts.

In addition to the pre-conference workshops and presentations, we will provide:

  • updates on the IASB projects and the work undertaken by the Board’s and Interpretations Committee’s in supporting the implementation and application of the Standards;
  • two lively panel discussions on:
    • Judgments and estimates
    • Technology and its impact on accounting;
  • technical break-out sessions, which will provide forums to discuss and examine in detail major research and Standard-setting projects on the Board’s active Agenda.

I look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt.

Yours sincerely,

Hans Hoogervorst

Chair of the Board
