on selection, highlighted content

Registration is closed. Because the 2022 Spring Meetings will be mostly virtual, Spring Meetings badges will not be issued, except to those Delegates who are approved to attend in person.

All events - including the public events, invitation-only events, Civil Society Organization engagements, and press conferences - will be virtual and accessible on WBG and IMF digital platforms.

Delegate

Delegates are governmental officials of the member countries of the World Bank/IMF, who register through their respective Executive Director's office for the Meetings. Delegations may send a limited number of in-person attendees to the 2022 Spring Meetings, and the instructions on registering delegates, as well as the requirements for in-person attendance, have been communicated to each Executive Director's Office. Delegates with questions about registering for the Spring Meetings should refer to their respective Executive Director's Office. 

Delegates can continue to register for virtual participation until Thursday, April 28. 

If you have any questions about delegate registration, please forward your inquiry to delegateregistration@worldbank.org.

Observer

Observer registration is closed.

Observers are the representatives of international, regional, and economic organizations that were pre-approved and invited by the World Bank Group and IMF. Please see the list of 2021 Annual Meetings Observer Organizations. Because the Spring Meetings will be mainly virtual, Observer badges will not be issued, except for those Observers explicitly invited to attend the IMFC and G20 Meetings, who have already been notified. If you have any questions about Observer registration, please forward your inquiry to ObserverRegistration@worldbank.org.

As in previous years, the World Bank Group and IMF will host the Civial Society Policy Forum (CSPF) as part of the 2022 Spring Meetings. The CSPF is an opportunity for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to share their views and perspectives in facilitated dialogues with Bank and Fund staff, other CSOs, and stakeholders. The CSPF will be held from April 4 to April 15, 2022.
