IPTC Events

The IPTC meets at least twice a year when its Standards Committee and Working Groups discuss and develop their ideas to support the rapid innovation of the media and the news industry in particular. We also hear from IPTC members discussing their recent work, and invite relevant speakers from the media industry to share their projects with our members.

Additionally, the IPTC organises other events to promote its standards and to provide insights about their usage.
