Welcome to 


Publishing University

The Premier Educational Event for Independent Book Publishers
April 7-10, 2021
A Fully Virtual Online Event
  • Facebook - White Circle
  • Twitter - White Circle
  • YouTube - White Circle
Discover Fresh Strategies, New Connections, and Innovative ideas!

IBPA Publishing University 2021 will be presented on the Attendify virtual event platform.

During its August 2020 meeting, the IBPA Board of Directors decided to make IBPA Publishing University 2021 a fully virtual event in order to protect the health and safety of the entire IBPA community. We're excited about how the new format will enable lower admission fees, more scholarships, additional educational opportunities, and authentic connections that honor the networking and one-to-one mentoring attendees have come to expect from an IBPA event. 

For nearly three decades, IBPA Publishing University has been the independent publishing community's must-attend networking and educational event. Why? Because IBPA's expert speakers understand how to start, grow, and succeed in publishing's new world and can't wait to share what they know with you!...this year VIRTUALLY!

More information about Attendify, the online event platform selected for IBPA Publishing University 2021, is available here. Interested in updates as they're available? Scroll to the bottom of this page to sign up. I hope to "see" you there!
