The venue for the 16th International Pragmatics Association is The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

The conference opening on Sunday 9 June 2019, as well as all plenaries on 9, 12, and 14 June will take place in the Jockey Club Auditorium (Wing S-T). On Sunday this will also be the location of the registration desk.

Parallel sessions, coffee/tea breaks, lunches, and book exhibit, as well as the registration area (on Monday through Friday) will be concentrated in close proximity to each other around Wings A-G, B-C, C-D, C-F, F-J, G-F, and H-J.


For the POSTERS, poster boards will be available of size A0. The display structure will be 1m wide and 2.5m high. 

It is best to bring posters along when you arrive in Hong Kong. If that is not possible, there is a limited-capacity printing shop near campus which can offer next-day A0 size poster printing at around HKD 120. Service cannot be ordered by email, and the shop is closed on Sunday. When ordered and paid in cash before 18:30 the print is available at 14:00 the next day.
