Event Details

The IAIABC's first-ever hybrid conference

The IAIABC Convention addresses the current policy, regulatory, and administrative challenges and opportunities affecting workers' compensation around the world through a combination of presentations, discussion forums and roundtables,  and social events.

The IAIABC Convention brings together more workers' compensation jurisdictional agency leaders than any other conference in North America. 

The 107th Convention will be hosted as a "hybrid" conference, offering both in-person and virtual participation options. The hybrid conference will provide the opportunity for those who are comfortable traveling and attending in-person to do so, while giving a virtual option for those who elect not to travel. Many conference sessions will be available for virtual participation.

Who Participates? 

In 2020, over 350 people attended the IAIABC Convention - Virtual, including representatives from 43 jurisdictions. Attendees of the IAIABC Convention traditionally include:

  • Jurisdictional regulators and administrators
  • Government/regulatory affairs personnel

  • Claims administrators
  • Attorneys
  • Service providers
  • Medical providers
  • Administrative law judges
  • ... and many more!
