FIPP and Deal Room: easily connect and meet with worldwide colleagues at the Congress

Networking and connecting people are at the heart of every FIPP event and the 42nd FIPP World Media Congress in Las Vegas is no exception.

Hundreds of colleagues from around the world will be at Planet Hollywood from 12-14 November to learn, to network, and to do business. FIPP has now partnered with Deal Room to make it easy for every delegate attending to organise meetings with colleagues at the Congress through this innovative networking platform.

***Time is now fast running out to join us at the Congress. If you have not signed up yet, you can do so here. This will include access to the Deal Room platform***

Register now


Find out below more about how Deal Room works, the people you will meet at the Congress and key times in the event schedule around which you can customise your Congress experience.


How Deal Room works

The platform increases your networking efficiency and productivity by offering a uniquely streamlined way to pre-book 1-on-1 meetings across the duration of the event.

Once we open access to the platform for delegates (later this week), they can see who is attending, view their profiles and request meetings with them before and during the event.

Once you receive the deal room invitation email you should take some time to build your own profile, clearly stating your objectives at the event, what you offer and who you would like to meet.

There will be a dedicated area in the exhibition for meetings.

Register to attend the Congress to get access to Deal Room from later this week and arrange your meetings for Vegas.

Don’t miss out on the chance to meet your colleagues at the Congress in Vegas. Time is now running out.  If you haven’t done so yet, sign up here.


 Planning your congress schedule:

- 12 November: The Congress starts at 12:30 on Tuesday 12 November with our keynote channel until 6 pm. From 7 pm delegates are invited to attend our opening drinks and award ceremony with UPM.

- 13 November: This is a big content day, with the program breaking into three channels. Programming starts at 9 am on Wednesday 13 November and runs through to 6 pm.

- 14 November: We go back to a single program channel and whisk you around the world, hearing from speakers from the US, Argentina, Brazil, Chinese Taipei, Germany, Japan, South Africa and the UK. There is a strong focus on magazines here, but not necessarily in the format you have come to suspect. The agenda starts at 9 am and we wrap up the Congress at 1 pm.

The expo and meetings areas will be open throughout this time, meaning you can customise your experience around the speakers you would like to see, meetings you have arranged, and general networking as you see fit.
