IIBI was a pioneer in designing and organising international conferences in Islamic banking and takaful (Islamic insurance) dating back to the 1980s. IIBI conferences played a vital role in sharing experiences and presenting views on matters of common interest to bring about the desired change in development of practices and structures to promote the Islamic finance industry.

From time to time, IIBI was invited to support conferences organised by other organisations.

The last conference IIBI was involved with was the Euromoney 12th Annual Islamic Finance Summit in London, United Kingdom, in 2013.
