What have people said about news:rewired?

Hannah Waldram, community coordinator, news, at Guardian.co.uk

news:rewired is a great way for practising journalists or burgeoning students to find out what’s new and developing in the industry. Not only a good excuse to meet other practitioners and key industry players, the event is also a great instigator to ideas and debate on issues around journalism today.

Very good value for money. I’ve paid five times as much for less useful events in dreary venues.

Adam Tinworth, editorial development manager, Reed Business Information

Unlike too many journalism conferences, news:rewired has a great history of getting those actually implementing changes and pushing the boundaries of news innovation in front of an audience of their peers. More practical experience, less theoretical strategy: exactly what the industry needs right now.

Chie Elliott, freelance journalist

I never miss a news:rewired event. Whatever the theme you always walk away with something useful to use and think about. I love the networking in between sessions.
