IH Directors' Conference 2019

4-7 May 2019

Join us in Catania for the IH Directors' Conference 2019. 

The IH Directors’ Conference affords an opportunity for those who own or manage International House schools to invest time in their own personal development and leadership skills, hear from industry experts and share their own knowledge with each another. It is also a time for celebrating the IH network, highlighting everything we have achieved in the previous year, and informing our strategy for the future.

In 2019, the IH Directors’ Conference will be hosted by IH Catania in the beautiful, coastal Hotel Baia Verde from Saturday 4th – Tuesday 7th May 2019.
