Magazine media’s flagship global event and a media tour to LA

The 42nd FIPP World Congress in Las Vegas is almost upon us, and apart from attending magazine media’s flagship global event, FIPP now also offers you an opportunity to bolt on a media tour to Silicon Beach in Los Angeles, a short hop by plane away.

A wealth of knowledge

With more than 70 speakers from around the world, experts from within and outside our industry, the Congress will deliver a wealth of knowledge with which to infuse your teams back home. The potential value derived, immense.

There are still a few minor tweaks to come to the agenda, but you can see the latest version here and list of speakers here. The agenda starts at 1pm on Tuesday, 12 November and ends at 1pm on Thursday, 14 November.

We are now also offering you the opportunity to join a small, selected group of media colleagues on a media tour to Silicon Beach in Los Angeles. The aim of the tour is to meet with changemakers active at the intersection of storytelling and technology, in perhaps the city most associated with storytelling over the years. For a small additional investment to your Congress ticket, we will bring you together serious talent and smarts operating at this intersection.

The tour starts in the evening of 14 November (the Congress agenda ends at 1 pm in the afternoon, giving you ample time to get to LA) with networking drinks and a meet-up with local business, media and startup leaders, followed by five in-depth meetings on Friday the 15th. A perfect end to an intense week of learning and making new contacts, leaving the weekend for you to either spend in LA or surrounds or return home. Sign up for the tour when you register for the FIPP World Congress.
