Any country wishing to host a Convention must do a detailed feasibility study, on the suggested venue, with a breakdown of the costs, suitable convention centre, hotels, travel possibilities etc. Guidelines on the details needed when preparing a bid, can be obtained from the IIW office.
Prepared bids must be sent to the office by a chosen date, and include one copy for each member of the Governing Body.
The Governing Body then considers all the bids received and a vote is taken.
The successful bid is announced at the next Convention.
