When will more details and registration be available?
FICP is designing a one-of-a-kind virtual education and networking event. View the schedule of events for the latest information. Registration is open and information can be found here.
What does registration include?
FICP Education Week 2.0 registration includes access to all live and on-demand sessions and networking activities June 21-24, and all session proceedings and recordings.
Will sessions be recorded? If yes, will I have access to the recordings?
All permitted sessions will be recorded and available on-demand following the live presentation. Keynote session recordings will be available in the TheNetwork through Friday, December 23, 2021. All other session recordings will be available indefinitely.
What is the registration cancellation policy?
Due to the nature of the virtual format, refunds are not permitted. All purchases are final.
What if I want to transfer my registration to someone else?
Registrants who are unable to attend may designate another person to attend in their place provided that they are employed within that same company. All requests for substitutions must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and approved by FICP.
How do I access the virtual event?
All event registrants will log into an exclusive Education Week 2.0 attendee portal for access to live and on-demand sessions and activities, a community within TheNetwork, and additional sponsor and attendee information. You will receive an email with your link to this portal the week of June 7.
What virtual event platform will the event be held on?
All sessions will be held via Zoom. Networking activities will take place on three different platforms – Remo, Gatheround, and Wonder. Once you log into the attendee portal, you’ll be able to easily access each of these platforms by simply clicking a button.
In what time zone does the event take place?
The times listed are in Central Daylight Time (CDT).
How do I earn CMP credits for attending?
One week after the virtual event, FICP will submit session attendance rosters to the Events Industry Council (EIC). If you registered for Education Week 2.0 with the same email address associated with your Events Industry Council CMP Account, the event will automatically be added to your account. Once you receive an email confirming that your attendance has been recorded, log into your CMP account and “edit” the event in your portal to record the total number of hours you spent in educational sessions. For more information on claiming CE after an FICP event, visit our website: https://www.ficpnet.com/Learn/CMP-Center.
Are Zoom backgrounds available for this event?
Yes, the Zoom background for the event is available for download here. For instructions about how to use Zoom backgrounds, review this article on Zoom’s Help Center.
How can I find out who else is virtually attending?

Can I chat with a specific attendee or speaker?
Once the Education Week 2.0 attendee portal has launched, you will log in and click the “Attendees” button to access an attendee list that will include email addresses.
What networking opportunities can I expect during Education Week 2.0?
Throughout the week, enjoy dedicated networking time to connect with fellow attendees while testing out different virtual networking platforms! Check out the Networking page on our website to learn more.
How will I access the networking tool platforms?
Closer to the event, FICP will share how-to videos, walking you through how to navigate each tool. On Monday, June 21, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CDT, attendees will have the opportunity to test out the three different networking tools. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and ensure your browser, hardware, and internet connection are compatible to access each tool.
