Past attendees have indicated that IPMA’s annual conference is often the only annual conference that they attend. 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 600 members nationwide. IPMA members manage in-house operations ranging in size from over 100 employees to smaller shops with two to three people.
