The speaker stages are all set around the hub of the event where delegates can explore the palm tree lined “FIPP Strip”, showcasing the latest innovations, thought leadership and practical solutions to every business need. Complete with its own bar, street entertainers and media city stage the FIPP Strip offers a wealth of opportunity to cultivate new ideas and form partnerships. Each stand is uniquely themed with a Vegas twist and a few surprises. 

Delegates can formalise their networking by searching and pre-booking meetings in a dedicated area across the whole event using our deal room platform. This functionality will be available two weeks in advance of the Congress. Join us in Vegas!
