BUDAPEST - THE REAL THING
Our world is global and we have a wide variety of means of communication at our disposal. Why bother to travel a long way to meet real people?
Just as the virtual book is not a substitute for a real book, just as we want to see, feel, and touch a real book, we want to meet real people and talk to them, face-to-face, as we prefer to "meet" a book "face-to-face". This is what the ILAB Congresses offer: the possibility to meet colleagues, collectors, librarians, and real books, and the possibility for collectors, librarians, and real books to meet us. Amor librorum nos unit!
Early Bird Fee (until 31st January 2016): 1.079 Euros
Regular Fee (from 1st February 2016): 1.143 Euros
On-Site Fee (from 12th September 2016): 1.524 Euros
