THE ANNUAL IABS CONVENTION is already a firm favourite on the international barbershop circuit. Underpinned by legendary Irish hospitality, the quality of competition and performance at Conventions in Ireland is equalled only by the fun of the afterglows!
Last October, IABS celebrated a big anniversary: our 30th Annual Convention, when hundreds of barbershop enthusiasts converged in the stunning surroundings of Killarney, Co Kerry. The competitions were held in the Irish National Exhibition Centre (INEC), the largest music and multi-purpose venue in Ireland outside Dublin, and Ireland’s only residential event centre.
For 2020, we're back in Killarney on October 2-4, to welcome our wonderful guests Parkside Harmony from the USA — along with hundreds of barbershop enthusiasts from Ireland, UK and Europe.
Registration for the 2020 event is open, 1 July 2020 click below. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please use the CONTACT PAGE >
