Childcare Survey


If you are interested in attending the ISBA 2024 World Meeting in Venice, Italy next year (1-7 July 2024), and if you are considering traveling with children, we encourage you to fill out our childcare survey.

ISBA is considering several options for childcare, and your input will be very helpful in gauging levels of interest and helping us tailor our options. Note that this survey is non-binding, so we encourage you to fill out the survey even if you are unsure of your plans next July. We will send out official details about childcare options in early 2024.
