9th IPEd national editors conference
8-10 May 2019, Pullman Melbourne On the Park

We are looking forward to rolling out the red carpet for you in Melbourne in May 2019, at the 9th IPEd national editors conference.

In addition to delegates from across Australia, we hope also to welcome colleagues from New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Canada, the United States, South Africa and elsewhere.

The biennial conference is an exciting opportunity for editors and other publishing professionals, researchers, students and associates to connect, learn and celebrate best practice in editing and publishing.

With our theme of Beyond the Page, there will be something for everyone: the conference will showcase current professional practice and research, highlighting emerging trends in editing and publishing across platforms as well as across the range of professional roles and modes in which editors contribute to the publishing process.

As well as the formal and professional development aspects of the conference, there will be many opportunities to socialise and network, including a welcome cocktail party, the Gala Dinner, tours and (for the more introverted) intimate breakfast, lunch and dinner gatherings.

As the coffee capital of Australia – and a mecca for foodies, art, cultural and shopping aficionados – Melbourne is sure to delight, so do set aside some extra time (and cash) for your visit.

And make Melbourne your destination of choice in 2019.

I look forward to welcoming you here.
