Choosing a Host City


The call for expressions of interest from potential Congress hosts for 2022-2024 is now open through November 15, 2019.


ISPA holds two Congresses annually, one every January in New York City and a second International Congress in a different area of the world. Recent International Congress locations include Malmö, Sweden/Copenhagen, Denmark (2015), Melbourne, Australia (2016), Montréal, Canada (2017), Leeuwarden-Friesland, Netherlands (2018), and Guadalajara, Mexico (2019).

Who Should Submit an Expression of Interest?

The congress locations tend to rotate around the globe but expressions of interest from all regions are welcome. In soliciting international congress locations ISPA initially requests a Letter of Interest (LOI). The LOI is reviewed by ISPA's Program Committee (a standing committee of the Board) and a recommendation is made to the Board of Directors.
