The annual IBA conference is the premier event for international lawyers. It brings together approximately 7,000 lawyers - from more than 120 countries worldwide - for a week of conference working sessions on every area of law and for valuable networking opportunities at the conference and at social events arranged at the end of each day.

This year the conference takes place in Vienna. Vienna is the hub for central and European business, with more than 1,000 international companies coordinating their regional activities from Austria.
