International Exlibris Congress 2020

The Bookplate Society warmly invites collectors and artists to Cambridge for the 2020 FISAE congress

from Wednesday, 12 August 2020 (arrival from 10am)
to Sunday, 16 August 2020 (depart after breakfast)


The Bookplate Society is hosting the 38th FISAE congress at Cambridge, about 60 miles (95km) north-east of London. Our plan is to base this event in a university college, just as we did for the 19th congress held at Keble College, Oxford, in 1982. We hope to repeat the extra special friendliness and enjoyment in having everyone staying and eating together. Let us reassure you that we expect the UK's decision to leave the EU to have little or no impact on this event. Visitors to the UK will always be most welcome.

We intend to offer an interesting programme that includes some innovations.

We have visited several colleges at Cambridge and have decided that Churchill College offers the best facilities and largest number of modern student bedrooms. This college has now made us an offer of proposed terms. We shall soon hold further discussions with the college in order to agree arrangements. Please understand that there is stiff competition with other conferences for accommodation, so the above dates are the only ones available in August 2020. We must make a firm booking commitment by the end of 2016. This is why intending participants will need to register very early.

If you prefer the added comfort of staying in guest houses or hotels, this alternative will of course be possible (see the ROOMS page), but please note that there is a shortage of hotel accommodation in Cambridge so hotels must also be booked well in advance.
