The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals Conference (CILIP Conference), successor of the biennial Umbrella Conference & Exhibition initiated by The Library Association, is the annual flagship event for the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). The conference brings together library, knowledge and information professionals from all sectors of the profession from the UK and overseas, to meet, learn and share knowledge. It’s a great chance to catch up with colleagues and make new connections.

In 2024 the CILIP conference is supplemented by the CILIP (RPG) Unconference, organized by the CILIP Retired Professionals Group (CILIP RPG). It is the annual residential weekend event of the group.

The Umbrella Conference & Exhibition, formerly written (Under One) UmbrelLA, is the biennial meeting of the CILIP, formerly the Library Association (LA), special interest groups.
