IASB Convention Recap

Gail Davis, 30 November 2022

Each year, the International Association of Speakers Bureaus (IASB) hosts a convention for bureau partners to network, collaborate, and exchange ideas and expertise. This year’s 2022 Engage convention in Chicago was one of the best yet.

I have been a member of IASB since 2001 and my favorite part of their annual conference is always the high energy from fellow members. There’s something about bureau partners gathering from around the world who have a shared passion for impacting audiences through the power of speech that is electric.

I also had the joy of bringing along a couple of members of my team to join in on the fun.

And of course we can’t forget the standing ovation worthy keynote speakers! From Metaverse masterminds and futurists to inspirational entrepreneurs and well-being experts, the keynote lineup this year was unmatched.

Thank you to all the old and new bureau partners and speaker friends who made 2022 Engage extra special. Until next year, IASB!
