Speakers and guests

get excited about some new friends this february

BBYO International Convention has become the global Jewish community’s ultimate celebration of teen culture and leadership. Part of what makes IC so powerful and inspiring is the ‘company’ our IC attendees keep for the weekend.

BBYO convenes top talent and influencers across all sectors of society—leadership, politics, activism, pop-culture, music, business, philanthropy, creativity, tech, sports, and more—and provides intimate opportunities for teens to connect with their role models and heroes in both fun and purposeful ways. Normally our IC Festival line-up is kept a surprise until just before teens depart for the Convention, but this year we’ll be sharing our community of Special Guests in waves over time as IC approaches.

The Best of the World's Stage for the Best Teens in the World

The BBYO IC 2021 Speaker, Performer, and Special Guest Festival Line Up is in formation. There are many more role models, heroes, icons, and educators to come! Here’s a first peek at just some of the influencers joining us this year. Check back often to see who’s speaking, performing, and hanging out at this year’s International Convention—we can’t wait to share what we’ve got in store!

Stay tuned for industry experts, activists, and renowned thought-leaders from the following fields: animal rights, anti-Semitism, arts and design, brand marketing, civic engagement, climate change, criminal justice, culinary arts, entertainment and media, fashion, healthy relationships, holocaust and genocide education, human rights, Israel education and culture, LGBTQ+ equity, mental health and wellness, music production, racial justice, sports, women's leadership, and more!
