Call for Speakers

Call for Speakers

FICP is pleased to issue the 2017 Call for Speakers. FICP members have shared that they learn best from each other’s experiences, and for several years, FICP has included Planner Showcase sessions in our live events, putting planners and hospitality partners in the spotlight to share their stories. Whether you have 10 minutes of content or could fill an hour, let FICP find a way to include your company at an upcoming event! FICP is seeking case studies in the following areas, but is always open to additional ideas.
