STM Dinner & Conference 2023 | Frankfurt

Save the date!

STM would like to warmly welcome you to join us once again for our STM Annual Dinner & Conference in Frankfurt on October 16 & 17th, 2023.

What's this? STM’s annual Frankfurt conference has established itself as the ‘sell-out’ event prior to the Frankfurt Book Fair (scheduled for October 18 - 22 2023). Attracting the leading figures from scholarly and professional publishing, STM’s event provides a program focused on strategic thinking, public policy, business models, and key drivers shaping the future of the STM industry.

A not-to-be-missed event for publishing managers, executives, and industry leaders, the STM Frankfurt Conference is an unrivaled networking opportunity, which attracts international attendees from all sizes of publishing organisations. Here, together, we find bold, new ways to champion change and improvement that advances research.  

What to expect? First, a welcoming dinner on the evening of Monday, October 16th affords us a chance to connect in person and network. Tuesday, October 17th will offer a potent line-up of speakers, sessions, and ample opportunities for collaboration and connections.
