newsrewired

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 to their day-to-day work.

Get early-bird tickets

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:

Mobile storytelling – From video to longform, text-based articles, how can media organisations tell stories better suited to a mobile audience? And how do smartphone users’ behaviours shape how they interact with media brands?

Experimenting and failing – Newsrewired has previously showcased interesting newsroom experiments that resulted in successful projects and great stories, but what happens when the risk doesn’t pay off? We’re planning a workshop examining attitudes to failure in the newsroom and what happens when things don’t go as planned in the innovation department.

Collaboration – A great digital story or news product is rarely created by only one person – different skills have to come together, bringing editorial, product, design and development staff in the same room. But different teams work at different speeds, so how do media organisations promote a collaborative environment in their newsrooms and safeguard against “culture shock”?

More topics and speakers will be announced over the coming weeks, but you now can register by buying an early-bird ticket at a discount.

A limited number of discounted early-bird tickets (40) are available for £130+VAT until 15 September at 23:59 GMT or until the tickets sell out, whichever comes first – after that, tickets will be available for £180+VAT.

Delegates can also register for newsrewired+, which will give them access to the conference on 22 November and one of the hands-on workshops the following day. Early-bird newsrewired+ tickets are currently available for £323+VAT until 15 September, after which they will cost £368+VAT.

They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately. Training options will be announced soon.
