Invitation from the Congress Chair

I would like to invite you to attend the next International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) World Congress, set to take place in the vibrant city of Brisbane, Australia. The Congress will be held from July 2nd to 5th, 2025. 

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, renowned for its state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional service, will be our hub for these transformative four days. Here, you will find ample opportunities to connect with peers, exchange ideas, and form lasting professional relationships.

Brisbane, known for its warm climate, stunning riverfront, and thriving cultural scene, offers the perfect backdrop for our congress. As we gather in this dynamic city, we aim to foster an environment of learning, collaboration, and inspiration among scholars, practitioners, and enthusiasts of positive psychology from around the globe.

This year’s theme of “renewal” highlights our commitment to exploring diverse perspectives and practices that can help rejuvenate people and places. Our program features an array of keynote talks, workshops, and interactive sessions led by eminent, as well as emerging experts, in the field. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in thought-provoking discussions, gain insights from cutting-edge research, and share their own experiences and innovations in positive psychology.

We are also excited to offer various social events and excursions that highlight Brisbane’s unique connection to nature and culture. From exploring the lush South Bank parklands to engaging with the rich Indigenous heritage of the region, we encourage you to immerse yourself in all that this vibrant city has to offer. With so many fun activities within easy access, partners and families will also cherish their time in this city. Activities include nature walks, visits to stunning islands and maybe even some time with koalas and kangaroos! The foodies will also love Brisbane. I have had a chance to sample many of these activities and I’m confident you will be spoilt for choice.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane for an unforgettable IPPA World Congress, where together we will advance the science and practice of positive psychology and at the same time have some fun and renew ourselves. Start planning your trip now so you can savour the lead up too. I’ll keep you updated on all the wonderful events that will be part of the Congress.
