CILIP Conference 2019

CILIP Conference (3-4 July, Manchester) is one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated events in the library and information sector and we can offer one full delegate place with one night’s accommodation as a bursary place.

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 Keep up to date by following @CILIPConf19

The PPRG will have a stand in the exhibition hall, so remember to come and say hello, find out about our event schedule and see you can get involved with our projects.

To submit your application for the bursary place, the criteria is as follows:

Submit a 250 - 500 words on a marketing idea that you would like to implement in the future. We were looking for inspirational ideas so the ideas didn’t need to be constrained by practical considerations. Please submit by the end of the day on the 19th April to 

All entrants must by a current member of the PPRG.

We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have never been to the CILIP Conference before, and who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to go.

Alternatively, early bird discounts are available until 17 May and you can book these directly on the website. Remember to log in to the CILIP website before booking so that it recognises your membership status and offers you the correct delegate rate.
