After 10 years of great talks and networking in London, the Journalism.co.uk team is taking the 26th Newsrewired conference to another UK city renowned for innovation in digital publishing – Manchester.

Salford’s MediaCityUK is a thriving media hub: home to BBC, ITV, University of Salford and more than 250 smaller media and digital businesses. We are looking to offer our delegates a high-profile networking opportunity with regional media professionals, as well as a conference programme that brings latest thinking and innovation in digital publishing.

 

 

A limited number of early-bird, pre-agenda tickets is now available – book yours now for just £150 +VAT (standard price £200 +VAT). The early-bird offer ends 28 February 2020 or when the tickets sell out.

Tickets include entry to the conference, lunch and refreshments, evening networking drinks and a delegate ‘goodie’ bag.

Details of the agenda that will be announced soon.

 

We are also running two training courses as part of Newsrewired+ on 3 June

A focus on practical, hands-on learning has always been at the heart of our events, and Journalism.co.uk will be hosting a full day of training the day before the main conference.
A Newsrewired+ ticket allows delegates to attend the conference (3 June 2020) and one of the two full-day courses running the day before (3 June 2020). Details to be announced soon.

Early-bird Newsrewired+ tickets are now available for £360 +VAT (standard price £410 +VAT). The early-bird offer finishes on 28 February 2020 or when the tickets sell out.
