Exhibition & Sponsorship Opportunities

An IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) offers great opportunities to both commercial and non-commercial organisations, allowing them to showcase their products and services. IFLA WLIC 2020 will be a continuation of a series of successful annual meetings and is expected to attract more than 4,000 attendees.

Industry involvement is one of the key elements in the success of the IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2020. Your presence and contributions enhance the overall value of the Congress. The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions offers you the opportunity to become a sponsor of the WLIC 2020 Annual Congress, enabling you to raise the recognition of your company while promoting endeavours.

The IFLA WLIC 2020 will provide sponsors and exhibitors with exposure and access to delegates who have the capacity to influence the selection of products and services within their organisations. The Congress also provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate your support and commitment internationally to the field of libraries and library services. Participating in our sponsorship programme will extend your visibility beyond the exhibition hall to achieve maximum exposure at the Congress.

Information about IFLA WLIC 2020 is included in the Sponsorship Prospectus, feel free to download the prospectus.
