Congress 2025 Barcelona Announcement: Knowing pasts. Creating futures.

Read in Catalan


The International Council on Archives (ICA) is very pleased to announce that its 2025 Congress will be held in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) in October. The Congress will be hosted by ICA, Government of Catalonia, City of Barcelona and the Society of Catalan Archivists and Records Managers.

ICA is looking forward to working with our colleagues in Catalonia to develop a dynamic and engaging Congress offer that will speak to and address pertinent archives and records issues that are and will be faced by the profession. 

This will be the first time that the City of Barcelona has hosted an ICA Congress. Barcelona is one of the large metropolises of the Mediterranean and has extensive experience in organizing greats events such as the Olympic Games (1992), the Universal Forum of Cultures (2004) or Mobile World Congress. It is also a major cultural, economic, and financial centre in south Europe, with a long history that colleagues will be able to discover during the 2025 Congress. We look forward to receiving you!
