The main theme of the congress is:


As the world is facing so much uncertainty, the Media Intelligence industry and FIBEP members are charged with providing insights to clients to help provide clarity. During the 2022 FIBEP World Media Intelligence Congress there will be a variety of presentations, panel discussions, round table talks, and best practices shared.

During the three day tour (Sept 16-18), we will travel together to the other side of Ireland from Dublin to Galway with a luxury bus (about 3 hours). In Galway we will have a wonderful time enjoying Irish food and drinks together while exploring this harbor city. On Saturday, we will venture to the Cliffs of Moher to see one of the best attractions Ireland has to offer. We will arrive back in Dublin around 3pm on Sunday, which means you will have time to catch an evening flight out or stay in Dublin on Sunday evening.  

There is limited space for this trip, so we advice to book quickly. As always with FIBEP, we encourage you to bring your partner with you on this trip. The price of the trip covers the cost of all expenses, including food (and some drinks), transfers, entry to the Cliffs of Moher and hotel from Sept 16 afternoon in Dublin until arrival back in Dublin on Sept 18 afternoon.
