About The Conference

ISBA 12-14.09.2023
Wrocław, Poland

Venue: Conference center, Concordia Design, Wyspa Slodowa, 50-266 Wrocław

The International Short Breaks Conference is intended for everyone who provides, uses or requires respite/short break services and addresses issues raised by policy makers, statutory and voluntary and researchers. The Conference’s main aim  is to better understand the requirements and supports requested by individuals, families, caregivers and significant others. The Conference creates an opportunity to explore the development of new and innovative ways of delivering adequate personalised respite/short breaks when required.

Building Better Breaks Together: Our conference theme is inspired by people around the globe who provide the support their community needs, the way they need it.



My own experience proves that attending the ISBA conference is a unique opportunity to become part of a global community of people who dare to chart new paths while offering their resources, advice and care for others. I attended my first ISBA conference in 2014 and now, just 9 years later, the 2023 event is being held here in Poland.

At the ISBA conference we are Building Better Breaks Together (and having a lot of fun at the same time)!

On behalf of the ISBA Committee:
Piotr Kuzniak
The President of ISBA 2021-2023

Conference venue and registration fee

It's already known! Proven and one of a kind. The place of our meeting during the ISBA conference. It is Concordia Design building located on the picturesque Malt Island in the vicinity of the historic Ostrow Tumski and a few steps from the Wroclaw Market Square. The building itself is a business and cultural center. Interesting architecture and lots of greenery around. On site, in addition to participating in the conference, you will be able to relax both inside and outside, and from there you will easily get to many attractive points in Wroclaw. We will tell you more about Concordia in the near future. In the meantime, it's worth checking:

It is also worth knowing and saving in the calendar that registration for the ISBA 2023 conference starts in May. However, only for a month, from the start of the registration, the conference fee is available at a promotional price. The sooner you decide to participate, the better.
