The IMP Group annually hosts two types of conferences, the IMP Conference and the IMP Journal Seminar. Every second or third year an additional conference is held in Asia under the name of “IMP Asia”.

The IMP Conference is the largest in the world dealing specifically with marketing, purchasing and technological development in a business-to-business context. The style of the IMP conference is always informal. It is structured to maximise discussions and interactions among researchers at all stages of their careers. The IMP conference urges participants to present their findings in a challenging but supportive atmosphere. Authors are invited to present results from research at any stage of development. Since the early 2000s, the IMP Conference has been combined with a Doctoral Consortium, which aims to bring together young and established IMP researchers for knowledge exchange.

Organised annually since 2004, the IMP Journal Seminar is a smaller forum which focuses on presentations and detailed discussions of conceptual, empirical and methodological research which authors aim to publish in the IMP Journal.
