Announcing the next newsrewired event: 22-23 November 2017, London

Our next newsrewired digital journalism event will take place on 22-23 November at Reuters HQ in Canary Wharf, London. This will be Journalism.co.uk’s 20th newsrewired conference, featuring a mix of panels, talks and workshops on 22 November, followed by a full day of training for newsrewired+ delegates, who will be able to register to attend one of three full-day, practical training courses.

As usual, newsrewired will look at the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism, in a hands-on, accessible way, highlighting tools, workflows and lessons delegates can then take back to their teams and start applying in their day-to-day work.

Journalism.co.uk has started working on the agenda for the conference on 22 November, as well as the training options for 23 November, and the first speakers will be announced soon. We are now able to reveal some of the topics we plan to include on the agenda, as well as open registration for discounted early-bird tickets.
