Plugfests are great tool for providing feedback to the T11 organization on how well the standard i s going and if there are any flaws that need fixing. Plugfests are also used to help inform the developer community of whose products were tested and how far along the ecosystem is in that area.

The next Plugfest will be held at Austin Labs in Milpitas, CA on July 23-27, 2018

Non FCIA members are invited to participate in the plugfest, but FCIA Plugfest Committee calls & meetings are for FCIA  Members only. If you are interested in joining FCIA, please go to “Join FCIA” to learn about the membership levels, affiliated benefits and costs. If you have questions about membership after reviewing this page, please contact Shelby Laramy.

If a company participates as a Non-Member in the Plugfest, and decides to join FCIA within 90 days after the Plugfest, your membership fees will be discounted by the appropriate amount based on your company’s chosen membership level.

Participating companies that execute an NDA to attend an upcoming plugfest event and withdraw before the event will have their participation fees held for a future plugfest event.

Participating companies that sign NDAs for two successive plugfests events from which they withdraw will be barred from participating in another plugfest event for one (1) year from the date of the second withdrawn plugfest event. Withdrawal from the second successive plugfest event will result in forfeiting any paid plugfest registration fees.

In order to participate in Plugfest Committee test planning calls and the plugfest itself, an NDA  agreement must be signed and in the FCIA office prior to the date set for each event. You may access the NDA form here.
