The International Publishers Association (IPA) is the world’s largest federation of national, regional and specialist publishers’ associations. Our membership comprises 92 organisations from 76 countries in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Americas.
The IPA organizes the International Publishers Congress every two years in cooperation with the IPA member in the host country. The Congress offers an unrivalled platform for networking and discussion among the world’s publishers on industry challenges and opportunities.
The first International Publishers Congress was held in 1896 in Paris. This is the second time that the International Publishers Congress will come to Mexico. The last time was in Mexico City in 1984. The last International Publishers Congress was held in Jakarta, Indonesia and attracted 1,500 delegates to discuss the future of publishing.
The Mexican Publishers Association (CANIEM) is the proud host of the 2024 International Publishers Congress which will take place from 3-6 December 2024 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
