Welcome to 

The Premier Educational Event for Independent Book Publishers

A Fully Virtual Event

Discover Fresh Strategies, New Connections, and Innovative ideas!

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!

Want to know more about the online platform before registering for the confernce? Click here. Registration will open September 18th; the full schedule will be posted during the first week of December. I hope to "see" you there!

Located in the choice coastal edge of Los Angeles County, just twenty miles from downtown Los Angeles and seven miles south of LAX Airport, Redondo Beach, California has been a preferred resort destination for more than a century and one of the most desirable areas to live in the country.
