Each year, teams of eight representing area businesses, universities, nonprofit organizations, community groups, ambitious students, and globetrotters put their global knowledge to the test. Six rounds of ten questions cover topics like global affairs, geography, world languages and cultures, history, and more in this fun and interactive competition. The winning team takes home the traveling trophy, while second-place and third-place teams win valuable prizes. Does your team have what it takes to be WorldQuest champions?

We can all benefit from some time together right now. That's why the first 25 IRC organizational members to register will receive a complimentary team of eight in 2020. For more information on IRC organizational membership, please contact Matthew Hughes or visit our pages for business, university, and nonprofit organizational members.
Other ticket options include a general-admission team of 8 ($200), and individual tickets, where we'll take care of finding you a team ($20 for IRC members and $25 for general admission). Proceeds from the event, including any donations, support the work of the International Relations Council, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your generosity means so much.
A limited number of sponsorships are also available this year. For more information, please contact Matthew Hughes.
