IFRS Foundation Conference: Dubai 2012
Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 September 2012
Be part of the first IFRS Foundation IFRS Conference in the Middle East.
The IFRS Conference Dubai offers a unique opportunity to be updated by members and staff of the IASB on its active projects as well as on its future plans. Such an update may be of particular interest because the IASB will have completed its inaugural three-yearly agenda review.
IASB members and staff will set out how they are responding to the feedback received on the agenda consultation, and how they expect the IASB work plan to evolve. IASB presenters include Ian Mackintosh (IASB Vice-Chairman), IASB members—Stephen Cooper, Amaro Gomes, Paul Pacter and Darrel Scott; as well as a number of senior IASB technical staff and other IFRS experts.
Technical break‑out sessions conducted by IASB members and their technical staff provide a forum to discuss major projects on the IASB’s active agenda in more detail.
Pre-conference special‑interest sessions
0900-1200 - Wednesday 12 September 2012 - immediately before the conference.
Responding to popular demand from preparers, the IFRS Foundation has organised a number of special interest sessions. Special‑interest sessions provide a unique opportunity to discuss in detail topics related to the first-time adoption of IFRSs, the implementation of recent new IFRSs that become mandatory from 1 January 2013 and address issues specific to extractive industries. Presenters will include speakers with experience in the relevant areas and members and staff of the IASB.
