ILAB Congress 2024 - Amsterdam


14 – 17 October 2024

Join us at the next ILAB Congress, which will take place in Amsterdam from 14 to 18 October 2024, followed by the Amsterdam Antiquarian Book Fair.

The Dutch Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, the Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Antiquaren (NVvA), welcomes colleagues and fellow bibliophiles to their capital city.
Following our successful congress in Oxford in September 2022, Amsterdam offers a perfect location to meet and explore cultural highlights beyond the picturesque canals and historic architecture. For centuries, Amsterdam has been a centre for literature, art and book culture. The city still has many independent bookshops, both modern and antiquarian, and has fostered a creative atmosphere that continues to attract writers, artists and intellectuals from all over the world.

A congress was planned in Amsterdam in September 2020, but the unfolding COVID pandemic made this impossible and the congress was eventually cancelled. But this is now a distant memory and fortunately, a new date has now been found.

ILAB congresses are wonderful opportunities to meet and network with colleagues from all over the world, to exchange ideas and experiences, and to explore the bibliophilic highlights of the host country, where we have often been immensely impressed. As is tradition, the Congress will be followed by the Book Fair.

After Paris (2014), Budapest (2016), Los Angeles (2018) and Oxford (2022), join us in Amsterdam in October 2024, followed by the Amsterdam Book Fair! Please register HERE.
