After Corona, the IFVP conference is finally back. Well, not exactly the IFVP conference like you knew it. It will be equally interesting and inspiring but with a new name, a different vibe, a HYBRID component and on a BI-ANNUAL rhythm.
So, grab your chance to (re)-connect, learn, discuss and dream together with visual thinkers from around the world - because the next one is not until 2024!
Everyone is welcome!!

It will be a Basque experience, a learning experience, a hybrid experience, an artistic experience, a family experience. In short: an unforgettable experience!
Buy your ticket in person (Bilbao) before July 1st, and your ticket online before July 17th.
Sick of learning on your own over the last 2 years? Yes…? We feel you!
The summit will bring you a shared learning experience.
We’ll have great speakers (you haven’t heard yet), the guru’s of our field, best practices and brand-new insights, old dogs and young cats.
It will be a lasting learning experience using tried and tested methodologies like Open Space and quality keynotes as well as new approaches such sense-making dialogues.
Imagine a live conference where you can still feel the presence of the online participants. Or, being online but still feeling present on the spot. Some smart interactive technology, a dedicated online team, a programme designed especially for a hybrid experience and a reporter that takes you along in Bilbao.
And hopefully (as of 10 people) an asynchronous online experience in a timeframe that will be more compatible with the timezone you’re in. In Regional hubs, you can meet more local peers to create your own summit experience, AND be part of the global summit experience.
This will be the first global summit for visual thinkers, and what better way to mark that, than to bring in a completely new experience?
The whole summit will be interwoven with dance, music, theatre and painting. It will create feelings and memories that will live on in our hearts, long after we check out of the venue and the screens.
Basque country has a very unique and amazing culture, a dreamy landscape, great food and wonderful cities. At it’s heart Bilbao boasts a green and hospitable environment for our shared experience. And we will make sure you can taste, smell, see and touch it all from closeby (even if you are joining online :) )!
Bilbao the capital of Bizkaia/Biscay located on the Eastern Atlantic seaboard, stands at the heart of a metropolis with over 1,000,000 inhabitants with important transport infrastructures that provide connections to the main cities in Europe by land, sea and air.
In addition, we will offer you a real Euskal-Jaia. (Basque Party)
Maybe your family also wants to enjoy the Bilbao vibe? No problem! There will be tips and ideas for your husbands, wives, partners, friends ...
Even the kids have a dedicated programme supported by trained professionals and in the same space where we have the summit!
More details will follow soon.
Berlin is hip? Forget Berlin! The new Berlin is Zorrozaurre island, where La Terminal is located. This old factory transformed into a space for cultural and creative industries. It was designed to promote artistic manifestations. And…as an added bonus: WE CAN DRAW ON THE WALLS!!

And from these two entities is deployed a local and international team that will make this Summit possible. A connecting team, co-creator, builder of the space, the scenography, the content... the whole experience. And it will design the connection bridge between what happens in Bilbao (onsite) and the people who will connect from different parts of the world (online) creating a truly hybrid experience.
We also have the support of various public institutions and private companies.
