IPBA 2020

by Charles Hofacker


International Place Branding Association, Barcelona, 9-11 Dec 2020 ; Abstract deadline 5 Jul

Dear All,

In the hope that this finds you healthy and safe, we would like to inform you that despite the global Covid-19 pandemic, we still plan to meet* at the Fifth Annual Conference of the International Place Branding Association (IPBA) hosted by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra’s Departament de Comunicació, December 9-11.

The July 5 deadline for submissions remains the same and is fast approaching. You have twenty days left.

Please find the pdf with themes, publication plan, submission guidelines and key dates here (www.ipba2020barcelona.com).

* PLEASE NOTE that the health and safety of delegates is our first priority. Therefore, we will strictly adhere to the local guidelines as relevant in Barcelona in December. Needless to say, this might mean that – come Autumn – we have to cancel or postpone the event in case of a second Covid-19 wave or other reasons. In such a case, paid registration fees will be reimbursed in full. Yet, travel and accommodation bookings are at the delegates’ risk, so we strongly advice to make flexible bookings. In case delegates cancel registrations themselves a 20% admin fee (minimum €30) will apply.
