The next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 7 November 2018 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 23rd 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.

The tickets (£190+VAT) give you access to the full-day conference on Wednesday 7 November 2018, and include lunch and refreshments, as well as after-event networking drinks and a delegate ‘goodie’ bag.
