MEETINGS

The MGIP meets generally:

  • last weekend in June for the MGIP Summer Meeting which starts usually on a Friday and finishes on a Monday with the option
  • for an additional excursion on Tuesday.
    (This is our major event during the year which is very purposeful, yet informal.)
  • the eve of the opening of the Frankfurt Book Fair for a MGIP Dinner Party
  • the eve of the London Book Fair for a MGIP Dinner Party
