The theme this year is "Leadership: a bridge between tradition and innovation in libraries, archives and museums in the Caribbean," the leadership is seen as a tool and a philosophy to create bridges between changing times and expectations.

The 46th conference will be an occasion to sensitize the Haitian community and especially the state authorities about the important role of libraries in the flow of knowledge and information. This is the second time that this conference takes place in Haiti. The first edition in Haiti took place in 2012.
