The FIDI Conference has always been the highlight of the FIDI community's calendar, the moment where business relations are sealed and long-term friendships are born. After two years of lockdowns and virtual meetings, it is high time we come together again, in person, to celebrate our community's strength, resilience and unity. Because one thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us is that we're stronger together.
Another lesson the pandemic taught us is that the world belongs to those who embrace change.
We have all had to adapt to new ways of working from one day to the next, to find opportunities and partnerships in unexpected places and to think outside the literal box.
"This is how we have always done it" does not make the cut anymore. However, it can be frightening to take a leap of faith into unknown territory. This is where our global network becomes so valuable:sharing experiences and best practices from across the world can teach us that we are not alone and that there are tried and tested solutions out there.
So let's celebrate our FIDI community's resilience and expertise in style, parce que la vie est belle!

2019 FIDI CONFERENCE
The 2019 FIDI Conference in Amsterdam was a big success, with over 600 attendees from all over the world congregating in the magnificent NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky right in the centre of the vibrant Dutch city.
