The first three conferences were in-person, followed by three virtual conferences. This year the event is back in person and will not limit the number of attendees from any organization. This appeals to larger library systems, who often desire to send multiple representatives, creating numerous opportunities for contact and brand impact.

IPLFC utilizes the Whova conference platform. A system that connects each attendee via their smart device with conference information and notifications. This system offers additional exposure through direct attendee contact opportunities for your organization.

We invite you to sponsor this educational event and support the efforts of library fundraisers and critical stakeholders across North America.
