I’M THRILLED THAT THE FIPP WORLD CONGRESS WILL RETURN AS AN IN-PERSON EVENT IN 2022.

CONGRESS 2022 WILL BE ORGANISED BY TWO OF MY FORMER FIPP COLLEAGUES, NOW SERVING FIPP AND OUR MEMBERS AS DI5RUPT. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THEM TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING EVENT.

JAMES HEWES / FIPP PRESIDENT AND CEO.

WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING YOU THE FIRST IN-PERSON CONGRESS SINCE 2019! MANY OF YOU WILL KNOW US FROM OUR YEARS WITH FIPP, AND WHILE WE NOW OPERATE AS DI5RUPT, CONGRESS WILL REMAIN THE GLOBAL FIPP AND MEDIA CONFERENCE TO ATTEND.

Co-founded by Cobus Heyl and John Schlaefli, Di5rupt (“disrupt”) is a startup but its portfolio includes brands stretching back almost a century.

In June 2022, we organised, hosted and sold out the 44th FIPP World Media Congress on license for the first time. Also in June, we launched our first proprietary product in conjunction with World News Media Network – a seminar on First-Party Data Strategies. Our second wholly-owned is Media Makers Meet (Mx3 Berlin), which focuses on innovation in B2B as special interest media verticals.

We further provide content, commercial and marketing services to 3rd parties such as for the FIPP – Connecting Global Media’s Insider events (international speaker acquisition and sponsorship sales) and Google and FT Strategies’ digital immersion weeks.

With direct access to multiple media and tech experts around the world, Di5rupt taps into an extensive knowledge ecosystem in developing and delivering its product and service portfolio.
