Conference and Awards 2018

26 and 27 February 2018
QEII Centre, London

Join us at the biggest international development event in Europe, attracting over a thousand diverse professionals from across the international development and humanitarian sectors.

As the political and funding landscape continues to increase pressure on civil society, our two-day conference will challenge your thinking and stimulate debate around crucial current issues. You’ll get fresh insight from experts, exchange views with peers, and network with old and new people. 

The first day will include the Bond International Development Awards, which celebrate the sector’s inspiring people and achievements.

Check out the 2017 programme and a short film of the highlights for an idea of what to expect this year and book your super earlybird ticket for the best price.
