Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce the next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 8 February 2017 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 18th conference, and as usual, we’re 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 we will be announcing the sessions and the first speakers over the next few weeks.

A limited number of discounted early-bird tickets is available for £130 +VAT until 1 October or until the tickets sell out, whichever comes first – after that, tickets will be available for £180+VAT.
