The IBF/USBA 33rd Annual Convention will take place in Beijing, China at the Crowne Plaza Beijing Lido from Monday, May 23 – Friday, May 27, 2016 in collaboration with IBF China.
“We are very excited to finally have this opportunity for our convention to take place in Asia and especially in the great city of Beijing,” stated IBF President Daryl Peoples. “The IBF has been active in Asia for many years now, but in the past few years there has been a significant increase in our activities in the region and particularly in China. We are truly looking forward to connecting with the boxing community from that region,” added Peoples.
The convention will be kicked off as usual with the Welcome Cocktail on the evening of May 23. On the following day the delegates will go on a tour of Beijing and The Great Wall which will include the Meet the Champions event. The general session and seminars will take place on the 25th and 26th. IBF China is planning a boxing event at the Bird’s Nest on the 25th and the Annual Banquet will be held on the evening of the 26th. The convention will conclude on the morning of the 27th with a general session.
The IBF/USBA and IBF China are planning a great convention for their members and everyone interested in attending. “We are enthusiastic about welcoming all our members and colleagues and making this a successful event, as this will be a milestone in our organization’s history,” noted Peoples.
