Ibidem Events Potpourri was a convention held annually at Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada organized by Bob Weill and P. Howard Lyons, the editor of Ibidem, beginning in 1979.[1]

It began as an invited only gathering of contributors to Ibidem. It was usually limited to 35 mostly close-up workers. They would spend a four day weekend (Thursday through Sunday) in mid-October at the Oban Inn each year.

In 1986, when Lyons was no longer able to be a full-time co-organizer of "Ibidem Events" because of business reasons, the name was changed to "Oban Events".
