The European Chapter of the IPMI was established in July 2013. We are organising usually three annual events - a wine tasting during the Platinum Week in London in May, a specific session at the main IPMI Conference in June in the US and a dedicated Seminar in Europe in November. The Chapter is open for membership for companies and individuals based or active in Europe.

Approximatively 140 individuals are members of the European Chapter, and we are sponsored by 32 Patron companies. Our Board of Directors comprises 12 persons, 5 of them acting as Officers and taking care of the Chapter operations.

All information about past Seminars can be found here.

2018 November Seminar is taking place in Budapest. We are fully booked, sorry, but you can still click here for all details.
