Past news:rewired delegates share their thoughts on our previous digital journalism conferences:

“The combination of speakers from the cutting edge of journalism and an assembly of people driven to be at the cutting edge makes news:rewired the most electric gathering of journalists in Europe. A must-attend”Markham Nolan, Storyful

“A conference that invests in talking about the future of journalism and social media, rather than simply reacting to changes in practice after they’ve already happened”Richard Moynihan, Metro

“Great opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the leading innovators in journalism and to learn a thing or two” – Lawrence Havelock, Bridging & Commercial

“The place to find tools, techniques and inspiration” – Rohan Jayasekera, Vivartz
