IKAA International Gatherings

IKAA Network Organizations take turns hosting large-scale International Gatherings in their local regions. These events provide the chance for adoptees to participate in events across the globe. International Gatherings commonly welcome over 150 attendees and are held at least once per year. On a recurring basis (~every 3 years), the International Gathering is held in Seoul, Korea, attracting up to 700+ attendees. Over the years, these events have grown to welcome future generations of adoptees and their families into the adoptee community.

IKAA International Gathering are a one-of-a-kind experience. #MyIKAAExperience captures some of these unique perspectives.
