The next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 11 July 2018 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 22nd conference, and as usual, we are aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.

The day will feature a mix of workshops and panel discussions about the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism.

We are currently working on the programme, and details about sessions and speakers will be announced soon.

A limited number (40) of early-bird tickets are currently available for £130+VAT until 20 April or until they sell out, after which tickets will cost £180+VAT.
