FIPP World Media Congress 2024

FIPP World Media Congress 2024

The 46th Congress takes place from 4-6 June at the Pestana Cidadela in Cascais, Portugal, our home for the past two years, in what is a special year for FIPP as we turn 99!

Today, magazine media transcends mere products; it is an idea that embodies the ideals of the communities they serve. Magazine media inspires their communities in beautiful, inspirational, and delightful ways. Magazine media rises above platforms; it creates relationships with their communities, whether in print, online, or across multiple platforms.

Congress is the heartbeat of the worldwide magazine media industry. It is the only real gathering of the global magazine media community and adjacent sectors annually, including creators, publishers, technologists, and other industry service providers.

Organised and hosted by Media Makers Meet – Mx3 (formerly Di5rupt), FIPP Congress gathers top speakers, media decision-makers, tech partners, and other service providers from 40+ countries (43, to be precise, in 2023) annually.


Congress brings together senior-level decision-makers who attend the event to gather insightsnetwork with international colleagues, and do deals. In June 2023, attendees from 43 countries participated in Congress.


Top industry leaders share top-notch insights at Congress. Recent speakers were from companies such as Axel Springer, Bonnier, Condé Nast, Dotdash Meredith, FT Strategies, Future, Google, Hearst, Hubert Burda Media, India Today Group, Mather Economics, Netflix, Reworld Media, Substack, The Economist, The New York Times, Trusted Media Brands, Vivendi, ZEIT Online, and many more. 


Congress takes place at the Pestana Cidadela in the beautiful Portuguese coastal town of Cascais, a short drive away from Lisbon. Once a tiny fishing village, today, Cascais, with its cobbled streets, offers restaurants and shopping, incredible scenery, and plenty to do outdoors.

It is one of Portugal’s most sought-after destinations. Cascais is compact, meaning Congress attendees never get lost, and there is a good chance you will bump into one another while out and about, allowing for more informal networking and deeper conversations.
