|Host a Congress, Conference, or *NEW* Mini Conference|
Which Event is Right for You?
Cost should not get in the way of protecting children. You want to bring ISPCAN's life-saving training to your community, where a desire to help is the price of admission. Our NEW MINI CONFERENCE is for you! Partner with ISPCAN by finding a donated space and sponsors, and we'll provide the expert and take care of the rest. Join us in bringing critical training to communities that need it most, at low or no cost to attendees. Intimate groups of 50-100 on proposed topic.
YOUR CORNER of the WORLD

AUDIENCE OF THOUSANDS
ISPCAN GLOBAL CONGRESSES attract 1000 or more CAN professionals from around the world. Your opportunity to show off what makes your city unforgettable. Share in the prestige and important connections forged at an ISPCAN Congress! Held in even-numbered years. We are currently accepting bids for 2020.
We hope that you will consider co-hosting one of these events in your country!
Bid Process: ISPCAN receives multiple bids for each congress and conference. All conferences and congresses require that there be a local group willing to serve as the nucleus for a local organizing committee that ISPCAN will partner with to organize the event. This is the group that will officially submit the bid to host the event. This group is drawn from professionals in the child welfare community and may all come from one agency/organization or be drawn from a variety of government, academic, NGO, and other related groups.
Complete an Expression of Interest document and submit it to ISPCAN.
The Expression of Interest will be reviewed by the Conference and Congress Committee, and they will decide whether to request a full bid.
If a full bid is requested, the ISPCAN Conference Coordinator will work with you to assist you in developing the strongest bid possible and in developing a draft budget. The request for a bid does not constitute any type of acceptance of that bid as there may be multiple bid applications that are being voted on by the ISPCAN Council.
