FIPP conference

a breakdown of the FIPP event

FIPP is a global trade association focused upon improving the media content industry. They held their World Congress at Tobacco Dock in October 2017. This bi-annual gathering is the industry’s flagship event and we were delighted to help them host it here. Targeted at those involved with multi-platform media, technology and marketing, this established event draws senior level delegates and a range of industry service providers from around the world.

Facilities and facts

Original spaces

The FIPP team were keen to break away from the standard hotel ballroom tradition and loved the unique spaces at Tobacco Dock.

Keeping connected

Our cutting-edge tech infrastructure and WiFi connectivity ensured everything ran smoothly.

Flex appeal

The distinctive layout of the venue helped them create an interesting and varied delegate flow.

Why Tobacco Dock?

The event organisers were keen to break away from the ‘hotel ballroom’ tradition and to find somewhere more innovative and characterful. They wanted a large capacity event space with scope for creating different areas and with great branding potential as well as being situated in a convenient and interesting location.

Their team was struck by the industrial styling of the venue. FIPP’s Head of Events, Claire Jones said: “The exposed beams, stone floors and combination of wood and glass makes the space an excellent hybrid of historic and contemporary.”
