Last month, BOKS International hosted its third Annual Global Conference. The two-day event took place in Toronto, Canada, with more than 50 delegates attending. Formal and informal networking sessions were highly productive, as new member connections were made and existing relationships strengthened, while the keynote and panel sessions were hugely instructive. This first conference since the COVID-19 pandemic began wrapped with a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ trip for delegates to Niagra Falls.

Richard Sergeant, Alliance Director, commented: “The atmosphere at the conference in Toronto was fantastic. The enthusiasm and energy delegates brought are testaments to the BOKS membership’s quality and demonstrate that what we are collectively building is something special and very significant. The commitment made by delegates, some of whom travelled many hours to attend, highlights the alliance members’ attitude and presents great promise for the future. Next year’s conference will be even bigger and better! We are extremely excited about the future of the alliance.”

Launched in 2017, the rapidly growing alliance now has nearly 90 members in 50+ countries and a combined fee income exceeding $340m while ranking at position #14 within the IAB’s Global Top 20. As such, BOKS International has far exceeded its initial five-year goals.
