A crucial part of IPA's mission is to inform member associations and the wider global publishing community about breaking developments which will impact publishers. We do this through a number of channels. the IPA website, our monthly e-newsletter, press releases and the IPA's dedicated social media feeds.

As Usual, IPA will hold its statutory meetings and conferences during Frankfurter Buchmesse from 9 until 13 October 2018. In this section you can find the detailed schedule.
