You will receive your Entrance Tickets in the mail and your Numbered Badge at the event sign in. You may bring additional guests for $95.00 per ticket. All guests and parents are encouraged to attend all the events, including the runway clinics and Q & A information session with the agency directors.


  • Is the Live Model Showcase a model competition?  No. The Live Model Showcase is not a contest or a competition. Everyone who attends our event is there because we consider they have real potential to be signed by an agency.  We look to boost participant's self-esteem and improve the self-confidence by providing education from the industry that they will receive at the event and by knowing they have been hand-picked by some of the most selective scouts in the nation to be seen by the top modeling agencies in the world.


  • Should my parents attend the FMI Live Model Showcase?  We absolutely encourage all parents and family members to come to our showcase. Note that if you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you.  Parents will learn all the ins-and-outs of the modeling industry and have a better understanding in how to help their child achieve success as a model.  We have assembled the world top agencies to be there so that parents can ask questions directly to the agents during a Q&A session at the panel discussion.


  • What happens after the FMI Live Model Showcase?  When an attendee receives call-backs from the agency directors, our first priority is to complete the process of getting the individual signed to the agency that best fits his or her lifestyle and priorities.  Note that a callback shows interest and is the start of the process.  If you received a call-back and an agency is interested in you, they will contact us and we will make sure that you are placed with the right agency.




We’re very selective. Keith and Steve bring us really great talent. So if they’ve selected you, we’ll see you.

They pick the right girls. It makes our job easier. We usually see girls from them that are potentially ready to go right away

I look for girls with a sense of personality and charisma. FMI always brings us really, really great girls. They have such a good eye for this business.
