The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals Conference (CILIP Conference), successor of the biennial Umbrella Conference & Exhibition, 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 our 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.

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