The International Association on Public and Nonprofit Marketing (IAPNM) / Asociación Internacional de Marketing Público y No Lucrativo (AIMPN) is a nonprofit professional society established in 2002 looking for a stable networking platform for academics and practitioners from marketing or other related disciplines who are concerned with or interested in these knowledge fields as well as in any other issue dealing with responsibility in businesses, administrations and nonprofits. It aims to contribute to the establishment of the adequate bases for an integrated, responsible and sustainable socio-economic development model worldwide.


At present, the Association promotes the following main events:

Ÿ The International Congress on Public and Nonprofit Marketing is a yearly event hosted by major universities or scientific institutes that provides a friendly atmosphere and a professional working environment for the presentation and discussion of latest progresses and developments in the above-mentioned areas.
