Event Format

The DistriPress Congress has a strong history of connecting its members in the Business Meeting Hall as well as during social events and informal gatherings over 4 days.

For over 67 years, the annual DistriPress Congress has brought together businesses from across the globe who are engaged in the publishing, production, marketing, distribution and sales of newspapers and magazines.  Our objective is the sharing of experiences, and business development through networking.

  • Badges collection – delegates can collect their badges at the Congress main hotel at the designated hours (please refer to the Programme for details)
  • The DistriPress Forum – kicks off event proceedings on Monday morning with a half-day agenda during which delegates hear from speakers and panels about industry developments and global themes impacting members
  • Business Meeting Hall and Expo –the central meeting hall houses the Expo stands and the Business Meeting tables.  Delegates meet clients and service providers from around the world in pre-arranged time slots, during which they discuss their mutual business and explore new opportunities. The Expo runs alongside the Business Meetings. Exhibitors are encouraged to showcase their products and services to attendees, the exhibition stands form an integral part of the Meeting Hall.
  • Business Meeting Tables – tables will be arranged for our Distributor members. Publisher and Service Provider members are welcome to attend these tables with meetings scheduled in advance.
  • Delegate List – the first list will be announced via email from and through our website’s Members’ area at the end of the first month after registration opens. Further updates will follow every two weeks.


DistriPress has a proud history of sponsorship support from its members, for which it is most appreciative.  Sponsorship allows the Association to continue to deliver a memorable annual experience for its delegates.

There are numerous ways in which member companies can showcase their brand and contribute to Congress – and it doesn’t have to break the bank!  Options include, but are not limited to –

  • Sponsor’s logo on Congress bags, branded Congress bag contents such as pens and notebooks, advertising on the DistriPress website, sponsorship of the Forum presentations and topics, contributions to evening events or goodie bag items.
  • All sponsor logos will be included on event signage and DistriPress event communications.

Please talk to the DistriPress management team about how you can get involved.
