Exhibiting and Advertising at the IMC

The 30th International Medieval Congress will take place from 3-6 July 2023 at the University of Leeds. 

After two years as a virtual event, IMC 2022 returned to the University of Leeds Campus in a hybrid format. Over 2,400 attendees from 60 different countries registered with 80% of these attending in person. Now in its 30th Year, IMC 2023 will take place in the University of Leeds campus, whilst retaining an option for virtual attendance for those unable to travel.

This year’s Programme features medievalists from 60 countries, with over 2,000 individual papers and 680 academic sessions and a range of concerts, performances, round tables, excursions, the bookfair, and associated events. We expect to welcome 2,700 attendees to IMC 2023.

The IMC offers a unique opportunity for publishers, booksellers, and other organisations to market to this specialist audience, both at the event itself, through its established and popular Bookfair and receptions, and through the IMC 2023 online event platform, mobile
app, programme, and registration packs.
