Ladies and Gentlemen,

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our model of face-to-face meetings. To adapt to the current situation, the PIKW Board decided to transform the 20th International Congress on Internal Control, Internal Audit, Fraud and Anti-Corruption Issues into a fully virtual meeting. Experts from all over the world will connect online to discuss the most important changes, achievements and problems of specific areas. They will talk about their own experiences, plans and challenges.

With a nineteen years' tradition, the Congress remains the only event of its type in Poland and perhaps in this part of Europe. It provides an opportunity to discuss the most important changes and issues as well as obtain opinions from Polish and international experts.

The overarching objective of this cyclic, international meeting is development, experience sharing and collecting knowledge on problems, challenges and perspectives facing auditors, internal auditors, corporate risk management professionals, fraud prevention and investigation, governance and compliance specialists.

We had a pleasure to hosts speakers and guests from Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, UAE, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, USA, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Poland.

Very high evaluation of the content and professional organisation of the Congress certainly contribute to the increasing interest - last year it gathered over 200 participants in online formula.

We cordially invite you to participate in the 20th International Congress on Internal Control, Internal Audit, Fraud and Anti-Corruption Issues which will take place on 28th-29th of October 2021.
