Swiss Group of International Schools Conference 2023

Last held in 2019, the SGIS conference strives to be one of the gems in the International School calendar for exhibitors. Returning to the 'circuit' in March 2023, SGIS is back!

The SGIS Annual Conference at the Institut Florimont, Petit-Lancy, Geneva
Friday March 24th and Saturday March 25th, 2023

'Old hands' and new are welcome.

Delegates (Administrators and teachers) represent many of the 54 member schools of SGIS. Historically, delegate numbers have been around 300.

If you exhibited at SGIS in the past, come back and renew those connections and make new ones - a lot changes in the better part of four years.

If you are new to SGIS, this is a great opportunity to come and make new connections.

The theme of SGIS's 2023 conference will be "Connection".


The case for connection being at the heart of education has never been more compelling. The SGIS conference explores this theme in three areas:

Sustainability - connecting to the world around us.  How can schools effectively teach students about systems thinking and the challenges that we face? How should schools function so that they act as model organisations? How can teachers support grass roots action and so develop student agency?

Diversity, equity and inclusion - connecting to and collaborating with others.  How can schools recognise, promote and utilise the richness of their communities? How can schools work together to actively oppose prejudice and discrimination? How can teachers and administrators create an environment that promotes acceptance and belonging?

Wellbeing - connecting to oneself.  School communities as a whole – staff, students and parents - are more aware of the pressures young people face in an increasingly complex world and want children not only to be successful at school but also happy.  How can schools help to foster a culture of care and respect for others?  What steps can we take to give young people the tools to make the most of their individual talents and abilities?


Further joining information will be sent to all registered exhibitors in due course.

Exhibition space will be allocated to registered exhibitors by organisers prioritised in the order in which reservations are received.

Please plan on setting up displays on Thursday 23 March (afternoon and evening).
