Announcing the training course options for news:rewired+ delegates: mobile, social or data

Our news:rewired+ tickets give delegates access to both the news:rewired conference on Wednesday 23 July and one of three training courses on Thursday 24 July.

There are three training courses to choose from are:

- Mobile journalism: Create multimedia on iPhone & iPad, led by Glen Mulcahy, innovation lead at RTÉ

- Creating a buzz: How to grow social media communities, led by Luke Lewis, editor of BuzzFeed UK

- Data journalism online, led by Conrad Quilty-Harper, data journalist at Ampp3d

We will have more details on the contents of the data journalism course very soon.

Tickets

news:rewired+ tickets are currently available at a limited discount earlybird rate of just £245 +VAT, which is a 25 per cent discount on the training courses (which cost £200 +VAT to book separately).

However, this discount will only be available for the first 50 tickets sold (news:rewired and news:rewired+ combined), or by the end of Thursday 8 May, whichever comes first. After this point news:rewired+ tickets will rise to £300 +VAT, which still gives you a 15 per cent discount on the training course when booked as part of news:rewired+.
