Congress is a true annual gathering point for industry colleagues from across the globe (43 countries in 2023, now already on 26 for 2024). 

We are fortunate to engage with media leaders in many corners almost daily. These conversations provide a genuine insight into international industry sentiment, including its positives, negatives, concerns, and joys.

They also demonstrate the willingness of the industry to engage, share and collaborate. Whether that is formally or informally, it is arguably something the industry needs now more than ever. FIPP Congress provides such an opportunity.


FIPP Congress is organised and hosted by Media Makers Meet – Mx3

They have various customisable partnership opportunities for Congress. Contact John Schlaefli at to discuss your goals and to see if/how Congress can help you. 

There are, unfortunately, not many speaking slots left, but if you still want to propose a talk, contact Mx3 co-founder Cobus Heyl at

We hope to see you in Cascais in June!
