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.
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 are 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.
We are now working on the event agenda. The topics you can look forward to include:
- Revenue models: what works for what newsroom?
Four speakers will zoom in on different revenue models: subscriptions; memberships; attention-based revenue; micropayments; and targeted advertising. We will look at what models work for different types of newsrooms to allow you to explore new ways of making your organisation sustainable.
- Create an artificial intelligence strategy for your newsroom
The latest research by LSE warned that 40 per cent of UK newsrooms have no AI-implementation strategy. To help you get ahead of your competitors, this hands-on workshop will show you how AI can help your newsroom and how to start creating a strategy to future-proof your organisation.
- Leveraging social media for news reporting
Social media is instrumental for any community reporting. We will look at the most effective use of traditional and new social networks to uncover local news, ethically contact sources and verify content. The panel will also talk about how to best use social media for re-connecting with the community once the stories have been published to (re)gain trust of news audiences.
- The importance of engaged journalism
We will look at inspiring examples of engaged journalism in the UK and in Europe to help you explore news as a means to empower communities and tell different stories.
