Trial Membership

Providing a Community of Peers When You Need it Most

No one planned for the 2020 we’re experiencing. To understand and better adapt to a new future for meetings and events, you need timely, relevant education and the innovative ideas of the FICP community more than ever before.

In recognition of the challenges you’re facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FICP wants to give you the opportunity to experience the benefits of membership, at no cost, for a limited time.

Eligible meetings professionals can become trial members between June 1 – September 1, 2020, and gain access to offerings that include:

  • Education Week (June 22-26): Five days of live and on-demand virtual education and networking activities that showcase the thought leadership of our members, hospitality partners and industry experts.
  • FICP Anytime: A suite of virtual resources, including TheNetwork, webinars (live and on demand), CMP resources, podcasts, e-newsletters, research reports, TheBlog and FICP Shorts (quick-hit videos), for information and insight anytime.
  • TheNetwork: The exclusive online community where meetings professional members and hospitality partners can participate in discussion forums or connect privately, access on-demand educational content and register for upcoming virtual activities.
  • FICP Chats: A series of facilitated virtual discussions between meetings professionals and hospitality partners focused on adapting to the future of meetings in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Shared Interest Groups (SIGs): Communities within TheNetwork organized around topics of interest to and exclusively for meetings professional members. Through online discussions and virtual meetings, they share innovative ideas, insights and best practices related to those topics.
