Do you remember the days when events used to be about people? Before we were locked down, and had to peer and talk to one another via screens? Not that we fault the latter, we mean, what would life in 2020/21 have been without that?!

But there is some semblance of normality returning following the harshest of Covid years, and in June in beautiful Cascais, Portugal, the 44th FIPP World Media Congress will be back responsibly, live, and in person.

*** Congress tickets currently cost €600 less with our limited-time Early Bird offer, which ends soon***
