The International Ombud Expo 2024 hopes to convene over 500 Ombuds Offices and other related organizations from over 100 countries on 29 July to 2 August 2024 in Gaborone. (The first event in 2019 attracted about 250 participants from 38 countries.) The theme for the 2024 conference is "Trusted Institutions: Righting Injustices, Bolstering Quality Governance."

Organizers of the International Ombud Expo 2024 say the event will involve:
  • Exhibition of the work of different ombud offices in existence around the world; 
  • First-time gathering of all ombud-types, complaints handlers, grievance offices and similar institutions in one location to showcase critical performance factors; 
  • Unparalleled insight into how these institutions execute their roles and make a difference in governments and organisations across the globe; 
  • One-on-one interaction and sharing of experiences with ombud leaders and diverse functionaries; 
  • Participation in workshops and expert discussions on topical issues; 
  • Meeting with wide ranging organisations which service and facilitate the role of ombud offices in different parts of the world; and 
  • First-hand insight for policy makers, legislators, corporate leaders, organisation managers and professionals on role of ombud and related oversight and regulatory bodies in tackling wide-ranging governance problems, righting injustices, managing conflicts, and boosting performance and productivity of governments and organisations; 
  • Provide a treasure-house of ideas, lessons, and best practices. Exhibitors and participants will share experiences, network, and enrich their capacity.
