48th FIBEP World Media Intelligence Congress
Confirms details of next congress: Washington D.C. DuPont Circle Hotel
Previously, the congress had been a "members only" only event. Last year, FIBEP opened their doors to both members and non-members from the communication, PR, advertising, technology and marketing sectors to take part in the event.
The 48th annual congress will also be the first congress for FIBEP's newly elected President, Alexis Donot, CEO, from Argus de la Presse.
Alexis Donot was cited "The FIBEP World Media Intelligence Congress is not just about networking, meeting clients and business partners; for me it's very important and a great opportunity to meet all our colleagues from all over the world at least once a year. We all share the same issues, for example Copyright. Having an update of what is going on in different regions is priceless. I noticed that we had in the past more differences between various countries, now we can see that the globalisation has some big effects on FIBEPs members. More recently, there have been a lot of similarities in the requirements of customers and in the range of services proposed by each one of us."
Alexis went on to say "Many of us provide the multimedia monitoring with analysis reports, databases, and advisory. The service level agreement has become a big challenge for most companies with a demanding delivery time and the "zero default". Each time I speak with a colleague we shared the same views regarding our industry; our customers are more and more demanding, they want a comprehensive and faster service with a state of the art portal gathering all the services. So when I see these trends and when I imagine what it could be in 5 years, I tell myself that having such a congress once a year is a great opportunity for thinking "out of the box"."
