FEPE International, the global association for Out of Home, is holding its 60th Annual Congress in Dubai at the Intercontinental Hotel Dubai Festival City from May 1-3.

Delegates will include representatives from the world’s leading Out of Home media owners, agencies and technology suppliers to the industry with over 400 expected to attend from all over the world.

Keynote Speakers already announced include JC Decaux Co-president Jean Charles-Decaux, Nancy Fletcher, CEO of OAAA, Kinetic Global CEO Marc-Antoine De Roys, Posterscope Global CEO Stephen Whyte and Tim Delaney, head of international creative agency network Leagas Delaney, and one of the world’s most awarded copywriters.

The Keynote Speaker is Jean-Charles Decaux, Co-Chairman of JC Decaux, the world’s largest Out of Home media company.

FEPE President and Chairman of the UK’s Ocean Outdoor Tom Goddard says: “We’re delighted to welcome Jean-Charles Decaux as our Keynote Speaker at FEPE’s 60th anniversary Congress in Dubai.

“This year’s Congress will have more of an international flavour than ever, reflecting FEPE’s stature as a truly global body. Jean-Charles is uniquely placed to describe the challenges and opportunities the industry faces as it navigates a rapidly changing worldwide media marketplace.

In 2018 our Congress in Sorrento attracted over 400 delegates from all over the world, including our biggest ever representation from China.

The Creative Keynote Speaker will be internationally celebrated copywriter and Leagas Delaney chairman, Tim Delaney. Leagas Delaney is now one of the world’s few independent creative networks with offices in London, America, Hamburg, Milan and Shanghai.

Tom Goddard says: “The word legend is often overused in business but Tim Delaney is certainly one as far as advertising is concerned. He is not only a renowned copywriter and creative director but someone who has built a successful international agency network over 37 years, by staying true to his principles.

“We are very lucky to have him at our FEPE Congress in 2019.”

Delegates from the Gulf and Middle East region are being offered a special day rate of £400 to attend the Congress and a full £1000 Congress package to include the opening Reception and the Gala Dinner on the evening of May 2 when FEPE will present its Annual Awards.

FEPE’s 60th annual Congress will be the biggest and best yet with delegates and speakers from the Out of Home word’s major markets including Europe, the US, Latin America, the Far East, India and China.

We have chosen to come to Dubai for the second time to reflect the growing importance of this region in Out of Home and are pleased to invite delegates from the region, who’ll be able to take advantage of these special delegate rates. We hope to welcome as many of you as possible to our annual Congress which will be as enjoyable as it is unmissable.
