Under an agreement signed in November 2019, Emirates Airline became the IPA’s Exclusive Global Transport Partner in a move that brings essential support for the Association’s increasing program of international events.

The agreement means Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, will provide international flights to bring key stakeholders to a range of IPA events. These include the 33rd International Publishers Congress, in Lillehammer, Norway, in May 2020, and an IPA Regional Seminar planned for Marrakesh, Morocco, in December 2020.

Emirates previously sponsored the IPA’s ground-breaking Regional Seminars in Nairobi, Kenya, and Amman, Jordan, which united hundreds of senior publishing professionals in Africa and the Middle East for the first time.

Regional Action

The IPA Regional Seminars are the brainchild of IPA Vice-President Bodour Al Qasimi, who has driven and implemented them as a way to leverage the IPA’s unique convening power among publishing stakeholders worldwide.

These gatherings provide a unique, multisectoral platform for original thinking, creative collaboration, and decisive action to stimulate and shape the future of publishing in a given region.

They are attended by hundreds of publishers, policymakers, educationalists, entrepreneurs and creative industry stakeholders with the common goal of making publishing an innovative, influential and universally beneficial force in a given region.
