Tickets are now on sale for the inaugural International F2F Fundraising Congress, taking place this summer.
The first in-person meeting of the global face-to-face fundraising community is being held in Vienna from 30 May to 1 June.
An early bird discount is available for a limited time, as well as group discounts. Speaker proposals are also being accepted through the end of this month.
The three-day programme will explore crucial issues and best practice through a series of interactive, outcome-driven, sessions based around the key themes of recruitment and team motivation; innovation and technology; donor journeys; ethical standards and self-regulation; and business models. Confirmed speakers include Daniel McDonnell of Unicef International and Elsbeth de Ridder of Save the Children International.
“The International F2F Fundraising Congress will provide a unique global platform for learning, skill sharing and innovation in face-to-face fundraising – still the primary source of new donors worldwide,” says organiser and host Günther Lutschinger, CEO of Fundraising Association Austria (Fundraising Verband Austria).
“Over the past two years we have held a series of free online-only summits to address crisis conditions in face-to-face fundraising, and we are thrilled to finally be hosting our global colleagues in-person in Vienna this summer. This is a wonderful opportunity for F2F fundraisers from across Europe and beyond to get together for the very first time at an event dedicated to this vital fundraising method, to share ideas and expertise, learn from each other and make new connections.”
Speaker proposals can be submitted now until 22 January. F2F fundraising specialists with insights and experiences to share are encouraged to get in touch. In particular, the organisers are keen for case studies, new research, and ideas for masterclasses and workshops.
Proposals will be evaluated by a committee of leading international fundraising experts, including Daryl Upsall (Daryl Upsall Consulting International), Ali Jones (Oxfam America), and Jean-Paul Kogan-Recoing (International Public Fundraising Council).
Tickets can be purchased, and speaker proposals submitted, on the event site.
