What is the FMI Model Expo?

FMI Model Expo provides the opportunity for you to be seen by 20 of the best modeling agencies in the world. FMI select applicants based on their potential to become a model. Agencies attend the Model Expo because they trust our ability to discover new talent.

FMI is excited to announce that the Model Expo 2020 NYC is adding a Kids Division to our event.  Due to both strong demand from potential applicants age 12 and under, as well as a high level of interest from agencies that specialize in this age group, FMI will now be extending invitations to candidates in this category at the Expo.  Candidates can expect the same high-level commitment from FMI and we look forward to helping young models and talents begin their careers.

Why attend the FMI Model Expo?

WE ARE PASSIONATE

We are passionate about the industry and giving you the education and opportunity to become a working model. We want everyone to have a great experience at our Model Expo. 

WE TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY

We are a “Mother Agent” here to help you and your family manage your entry and career in the industry. We treat all participants and their families with care. As a family run business, we attend all of our Model Expo and are available to speak with you in person. Whenever you contact FMI, you will always speak to one of our directors personally.

WE ARE HONEST

We are always honest and make no promises that you will be signed to an agency at our Model Expo. It is very competitive, but we do give you the best opportunity to be seen by the top agency directors in the world.

WE CONNECT YOU TO THE RIGHT AGENCIES

The top modeling agencies are in New York, and it is difficult and expensive to fly here hoping that they will consider you on the spot. Agency directors know our success rate and come to our Model Expo with the goal of signing new talent. Participants are sometimes signed at the time of the Model Expo. Other selected participants may be contacted later on after the event. 

We have a high percentage of discoveries being placed with the top global agencies attending our Model Expo such as; DNA, Elite, Ford, IMG, The Society, Ford, JAG, Marilyn, Muse, Next, Women and Wilhelmina. We are always available to talk with participants and their families who would like guidance and advice. 

WE ARE TRANSPARENT

There is a registration fee to attend the FMI Model Expo, and your FMI representative will provide all details on cost to register.  All of your Model Expo event costs will be stated up front with no hidden fees.

You must cover the cost of your hotel and transportation to and from the event, including any meals and beverages during your stay. Full payment must be made prior to the Model Expo.  Please note that there is no refund for the registration.

WE SAVE YOU MONEY

It is not necessary to bring or pay for any type of portfolio, book or photos. To attend our Model Expo, you are not required to enroll in any type of modeling school. We are actual model scouts who travel throughout the country to find people that have the real potential to model. 


What agencies are attending?

FMI is the premier model scouting company in the industry. We have placed over 350 models with the top agencies in the world. FMI has carefully nurtured our relationship with each modeling agency. Some of our relationships are over 20 years strong and continue to grow as we work with the directors about their ongoing and changing needs in order to place talent with the best agency.

FMI is excited to announce that for that we've added kids agencies looking for applicants ages between 7-12.
