ILAB - Congresses and International Antiquarian Book Fairs
An International Family
Budapest, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, Vienna, Tokyo, Munich, New York, Madrid, Los Angeles, Montréal, Melbourne, Paris, Bologna... Meet the World’s Best Booksellers at the ILAB Congresses and International Antiquarian Book Fairs!
ILAB Congresses and Book Fairs are held every two years in another country. They are cultural and social events that lead the booksellers to the capitals of the world, where they are shown the treasures of book printing and arts, and where they have the possibility of networking in a relaxed atmosphere with a worldwide background.
After Bologna in 2010, Switzerland in 2012 and Paris in April 2014, booksellers met in Hungary's capital Budapest in September 2016 at the 42nd ILAB Congress.

ILAB at Work
The presidents of the 22 national associations affiliated to the League meet once a year at the General Meeting, each year in a different country. The General Meeting (or Presidents' Meeting) is the supreme governing body of the League. The ILAB Committee meets at least twice a year. Its task is to manage the affairs of the League and to put into practice the decisions taken at the General Meeting.
