The IFLA World Library and Information Congress, which is also the IFLA General Conference and Assembly, is traditionally held annually in varying parts of the globe.

The IFLA World Library and Information Congress is the international flagship professional and trade event for the library and information services sector. It brings together over 3,500 participants from more than 120 countries.

It sets the international agenda for the profession and offers opportunities for networking and professional development to all delegates.

It is an opportunity for the host country to showcase the status of libraries and information science in their country and region as well as to have their professionals experience international librarianship and international relations in a unique way.

The congress also offers an international trade exhibition with over 80 exhibitors and an exhibition of approximately 1000sqm. The combined buying power of all delegates can be estimated at more than 1.2 billion dollars.

The future Congress in 2015 will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 15 to 21 August.
