32nd IATEFL BESIG Annual Conference
October 11 - October 13
Welcome to the Official Information Channel for the Berlin event.
All official information will be updated here so please check back often.
We are very excited to announce that the 32nd IATEFL BESIG Annual Conference will take place at Wista conventions Adlershof, Berlin, Germany from 9.00am on Friday, 11 October to 2.00pm Sunday, 13 October 2019.
Last year in Iasi, we explored the frontiers of business English, with over 80 talks and workshops on coaching, technology, management, soft skills, intercultural communication and innovative teaching methods. This year we’re going back to basics and investigate which tried and tested methods have stood the test of time and which innovative practices have become fundamental concepts in business English in recent years.
The conference will also include a GISIG strand on tackling global challenges such as sustainability, climate change and inclusion in the business English classroom.
Our venue is Wista conventions in Berlin Adlershof. With seven elegant and fully-equipped conference rooms, a state-of-the-art plenary room and a generous exhibition area, Wista conventions can welcome maximum 450 participants.
