World Conferences

Conferences on Gifted and Talented Children, described in this entry, are held every 2 years in a different country. These are presented by the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children. This council was organized in the mid-1970s by a group of educators from the United States and England who were dedicated to the challenge of providing the best for the world's brightest children. The council has members from more than 50 countries, so the conferences are truly international events. They are one of the most multicultural conference events held in the world today. To date, they have been held in London, San Francisco, Jerusalem, Montreal, Manila, Hamburg, Salt Lake City, Sydney, La Hague, Toronto, Hong Kong, Seattle, Istanbul, Barcelona, Adelaide, New Orleans, and Warwick.
