IAMLADP is an international forum and network of managers of international organizations employing conference and language service providers. The Annual Meetings bring together managers from over 80 member organizations to share knowledge and experiences and discuss subjects of common interest. 

The 2019 Annual Meeting was co-hosted by the two linguistic services of the European Parliament (DG LINC and DG TRAD) and the European Commission (DG SCIC and DGT), with the support of the Translation Service of the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union and the Directorate-General for Multilingualism of the Court of Justice of the European Union, in Brussels on 27-29 May 2019.  

The 2020 Annual Meeting will be hosted by the United Nations Office at Nairobi.

The Brussels Statement on multilingualism, issued as an outcome of IAMLADP 2019, is available in all twenty-four languages of the European Union (host of IAMLADP 2019) and the official languages of the United Nations here.  The French compilation is available here.

The Universities Contact Group of the Working Group on Training acts as IAMLADP liaison between international organizations and training providers, by promoting information exchange, cooperation and better relations between the two constituencies.
