The official opening of the congress was on Sunday 25 August with the presence of Yannis Stournaras, Governor of Bank of Greece, and Sofia Zacharaki, deputy Minister of Education. The opening ceremony started with greetings from the co-chairs of the National Committee for the Congress, Alexandra Papazoglou, President of the Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists, and Filippos Tsimpoglou, General Director of the National Library of Greece. Gloria Perez-Salmeron, President of IFLA, and Gerald Leitner, Secretary General of IFLA, made the opening speeches. Keynote speaker was Lucas Tsoukalis, President of ELIAMEP.

Bank of Greece is among the silver sponsors of the congress, having contributed financially to the opening ceremony, while the Centre for Culture, Research and Documentation (CCRD) of the Bank also designed the congress logo and its style guide, as well as a Calendar for 2020 containing descriptions and photographs from 55 Greek libraries. The Calendar was offered as a present to the delegates.

Since the very beginning, officers from the Bank of Greece Library participated in the organization of the congress. Eva Semertzaki, deputy Director of the CCRD, is one of the IFLA members who had the initial idea that Athens could bid for the organization of the congress, in the face of severe competition from other world cities.
