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, participation at the main IPMI Conference in June in the US and a dedicated 2-day Seminar in Europe in November. The Chapter is open for membership for companies and individuals based or active in Europe.

Approximately 200 individuals are members of the European Chapter, and we are sponsored by 26 Patron companies. Our Board of Directors comprises 12 persons, 6 of them acting as Officers and taking care of the Chapter operations.

Our next Seminar will be in Lisbon, Portugal, from 17-19 November 2019. This event will take place at the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa, in the heart of the city. Registrations will likely close soon as we are almost fully booked! Click here for all details and to book immediately - and avoid disappointment...

All information about past Seminars can be found here. The 2018 November Seminar in Budapest was, again, a great success - we were sold out and had 160 participants, which will be the absolute maximum number of participants for the following years, too.
