This is why we host our annual conference every year — to provide you and your team with the tools, resources, and skills needed to run a successful business, all while having fun and networking with your industry peers!

With that said, IPMA invites you to the 2017 Annual Conference, where you’ll learn to STAND LIKE STEEL in historic Pittsburgh, PA. Save the date, this can’t-miss conference will be from June 11-14, 2017.

Who attends?

Those attending are typically the primary managers from all industry segments of their in-house printing and mailing operations. They are responsible for making decisions regarding the selection of print/mail equipment, print supplies and software for their parent organizations. Past attendees have indicated that IPMA’s annual conference is often the only conference that they attend throughout the year. They rely heavily on the information gathered at our event to make their year-long purchasing decisions. As the only professional association exclusively for all segments of in-plant printers and mailers, IPMA has over 500 members nationwide. IPMA members manage in-house operations ranging in size from over 100 employees to smaller shops with two to three people. While some of our members manage just one centralized print/copy/mail center, many manage facilities in several locations.  Nearly 30% of our membership attends IPMA’s national conference. 2017 Attendee Testimonials
