International events

Welcome to the RIBA International hub for all international events, trade missions and international conferences.

The RIBA is encouraging and supporting its members to work around the world through organising and promoting events, raising awareness and creating opportunities to gain new international contacts, business opportunities, and develop skills and connections.

On these pages you will find information about the events and activities that will help you to work more effectively around the world.

These events are divided into:

  • those devised by the RIBA and dedicated to supporting architects, such as our International Conference, an annual event organised by the RIBA designed to help UK-based architects to understand more about working internationally
  • dedicated skills development programmes
  • our growing overseas trade mission programme, aimed at helping UK practices to make those all important initial contacts and open doors to future business.

In addition to the RIBA events and mission programme, you will also find information about selected international events and trade missions being organised by our partner organisations such as UKTI and British Expertise. We feel that these events will be valuable and of interest to architects, but they may not have a dedicated architectural component.
