Join us in the friendliest and most down-to-earth place in Canada for our 2020 conference. For two days and during optional events before and after the conference, you will

  • Discover tips and techniques for your indexing practice
  • Explore new insights and ideas for your business
  • Meet and mingle with your colleagues, old and new

The conference venue is the Murray Premises Hotel, a National Historic Site on the St. John’s waterfront. There are many attractions within walking distance, including excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries, and history. We’ve negotiated special room rates for conference attendees.

St. John’s is North America’s oldest city, and a place that is on many Canadian travellers’ wish lists. Be sure to plan extra days for whale watching and icebergs, visiting picturesque fishing villages, and experiencing traditions of music, story-telling humour, art, craftsmanship, and Newfoundland cuisine.
