We are focusing on making this game acceptable to everyone irrespective of gender, region, religion, language, race or culture. IQA has a global presence. We have already set our foot in North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia. The flagship program of IQA is World Quizzing Championship that happens every year to determine the world champion in Quizzing.

We established  IQA to bring quizzers together from around the world in high quality quizzes, and to help create and support national quiz organisations.
