The International Publishers Congress is cancelled

It is with regret that the International Publishers Association (IPA) and the Norwegian Publishers Association (NPA) have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 33rd International Publishers Congress which was scheduled to be held in Lillehammer, Norway, from 28-30 May 2020.

The climate of uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible to proceed with the Congress as scheduled and we wanted to let you know as far ahead of the Congress as possible.

As for the practicalities:

Your congress ticket: If you have bought and paid your congress ticket we will reimburse you (except administration fees). You will find your credit note enclosed.

If you paid with a credit card we will transfer the funds back to your card.

If you paid by bank, we need you to follow this link to register the banking details required to transfer the funds back to you.

Your hotel room: Please contact the hotel yourself to cancel your hotel room. By immediate cancellation there is no fee. Please check your booking confirmation from the hotel for contact details for cancellation.

Your travel arrangements: If you already booked your flight, we advise you to contact the airline and your travel insurance holder.

We would like to thank you again for your support of the Congress and hope you understand the decision that we have taken.
