CILIP Conference 2019, 3-4 July, Manchester

The CIG committee is pleased to announce that there are two bursaries on offer for our members to attend the CILIP Conference 2019. The conference now includes a regular Technical session so be sure to take a look at the programme and we hope to see you there. If you have never been to the CILIP Conference before, and wouldn’t ordinarily be able to go, we would like to hear from you.

There will be a CIG stand at this year’s conference so whether you are an existing member or thinking of joining CIG do drop by and say hello to our committee representatives. They are looking forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about our group.

Why you should attend

The CILIP Conference brings together around 500 professionals from across the sector to share experiences, knowledge and expertise. The keynote speakers include Liz Jolly, Patrick Lambe and Kriti Sharma. The programme is being finalised but you can see an outline of the session content at and keep up to date on conference developments by following @CILIPConf19.
