Newsrewired has always been focused on practical learning and knowledge-sharing. Our next conference takes place on 7 March at Reuters in Canary Wharf, and as usual, we are following that with a full day of training. On 8 March at our training venue at The Bridge (near London Bridge), newsrewired+ delegates can choose to attend one of two full day workshops to further develop practical digital journalism skills.

A newsrewired+ ticket gives you access to both the conference on 7 March and one of the workshops on 8 March. Training options will be announced shortly, and you can now register for a discounted early-bird ticket to attend the two days of the event.

Early-bird newsrewired+ tickets are currently available for £323+VAT until 12 January, after which they will cost £368+VAT. They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately
