FIPP, the network for global media, today announced the launch of FIPP Insider, a new series of events giving local audiences the opportunity to experience the best of FIPP’s global events in their back yard.
FIPP Insider will combine a select group of world-class speakers, sharing lessons from around the world, with the best speakers from the local region. Each event will also create the opportunity to mingle and network with peers from across the media industry.
In a first for FIPP, attending FIPP Insider will be free. However, to ensure a quality, intimate experience delegates will be qualified to those in the media and related sectors such as technology. Running from around mid-morning to mid-afternoon, it is an opportunity to sample the best of what FIPP events have to offer without leaving the office for much more than half the day at a time.
Said James Hewes, President and CEO of FIPP, “We are delighted to be launching FIPP Insider, an exciting new series of events that will enable even more people to experience the fantastic speakers and world-class networking that our hundreds of member companies benefit from every year. Each event will feature a world-class line-up of speakers and opportunities to meet people from across the industry in your region.”
The first FIPP Insider will take place in Helsinki, Finland on 15 March this year with more locations to be announced in due course.
According to Hewes, “Finland is fast becoming a hotbed of new and innovative media businesses, from traditional publishers transforming their businesses into multi-platform powerhouses to dynamic start-ups bringing new ideas to the market.
“We hope that media industry professionals from across Scandinavia will join us in Helsinki on March 15th to experience the best that FIPP has to offer. There’s even the chance to stay on in the evening and join the Finnish publishing industry as they announce their annual Awards. We look forward to seeing you there”
