The Association Montessori Internationale was delighted to call for bids to host the 30th International Montessori Congress to be held in 2025.

Submission of Bids

Parties wishing to host the 30th International Montessori Congress to be held in 2025 were required to submit an application to AMI and produce a bid document (PDF) outlining the key details for the organisation, programme, city, venue, accommodation, finances and COVID-19 plan for the Congress by 1 February 2021.  The submission period has now closed and no further bids can be received.  

Eligibility to Place Bid

AMI specifies different regions for each Congress to ensure global representation. Bidding for the 2025 Congress was open to the following geographic regions: Africa, North America and South America. The Local Organising Body must be either an AMI Affiliated Society or AMI Training Centre. Full details are available in the 2025 Congress Bid Process document.

Bid Review and Selection

The AMI Board has appointed the 2025 Congress Bid Review Committee comprising an independent chair (non AMI board or staff member), a board member, staff member and representatives of past Congresses. Each committee member will independently review and score the submissions. The committee will then meet, collate scores, and make a recommendation for the 2025 Congress for ratification by the AMI board. The successful host city and Local Organising Body will be announced by AMI by May 2021.
