Connect with Fellow Presenters and Attendees

The conference is far more enjoyable when you feel connected and include so, once you have registered, join the FIGT2020 Facebook Group. There is a lively, engaged community who is excited to hear what you have to say, and it’s where people will be making dinner reservations, group meetup times and any other social arrangements. If you’re not local, it’s where to go to ask for local information and recommendations.

Start using the #FIGT2020 Twitter hashtag in your tweets - you’ll be astonished how many of the FIGT community ‘met’ on Twitter. Tagging @crossingculture on any relevant tweets makes it easy for our social media team to retweet.

The FIGT2020 Conference App will be released shortly before the Conference allowing you to connect with attendees and view the Conference Agenda. We are a “green” conference and do not provide a printed program.
