Our next newsrewired event is less than two months away – this will be Journalism.co.uk’s 19th digital journalism conference, and it will take place on 19 July at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

As usual, the event will highlight and discuss the latest trends and techniques in journalism through a mix of panel discussions, workshops and spotlight talks, designed to equip delegates with the knowledge required to try it out in their own newsrooms.

Newsrewired+ tickets cost £368+VAT, and they provide access to newsrewired and one of three hands-on workshops the next day: digital storytelling, 360-degree video or social video.
