Icon Book & Paper Conference 2021 'Mod Cons: Modern Conservation. Modern Constraints. Modern Conveniences.'

The Book and Paper Group are excited to announce that the agenda and ticket sales for the #IconBPG21 upcoming conference are live. The conference will take place over four afternoons, from October 4th to October 7th, 2021, and will be held online on Accelevents, an all-inclusive and interactive conferencing platform. 

For more information and to register go to: https://www.accelevents.com/e/IconBPG21#about

This third BPG conference offers an opportunity to share and exchange ideas demonstrating how we are constantly required to evolve within the Book and Paper specialism. We bring conservation forward with modern advocacy and solving current issues. How are sustainable environmental decisions incorporated into our work? How are we addressing the lack of diversity working on a material that holds such diverse history and cultures? What new tools, techniques and treatments have been adapted or introduced to the field? How is Book and Paper conservation merging with digital solutions to improve access and efficiency in workflows? 

Early bird registration will be available until 18 July 2021 at midnight BST (to be crystal clear, early bird registration will run through to 18 July 2021, finishing at the end of that day at midnight.) Only early bird tickets will be available through Accelevents until the deadline. After that, the available tickets will be only full price options.

There are no early bird discounts for day tickets.

Full-price registration will run from 19 July 2021 until 4 October 2021.
