60 speakers now confirmed for FIPP World Congress 2022

The 44th FIPP World Media Congress is now fast approaching, and with just two months left to go until global media’s flagship event takes place, we have 60 speakers confirmed for the ‘Back to Reality’ return to real life networking.

From Dotdash Meredith to Future, the FT to the BBC, and all that’s in between… this year’s programme promises to be the most cutting edge in the Congress’ history… 

“The networking through Congress is so powerful that it gives everybody the opportunity to find the person or the business that they need,” FIPP President & CEO James Hewes tells Christian Kallenberg on the latest episode of the We Like Mags podcast, which is out now
