Speakers

The next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 6 March 2019 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 24th 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.

Book your tickets before 30 November 2018 and get an early-bird discount £140+VAT (full price £190+VAT).

The tickets give you access to the full-day conference on Wednesday 6 March 2019, and include lunch and refreshments, as well as after-event networking drinks and a delegate ‘goodie’ bag.

The early-bird offer ends on 30 November 2018 or when tickets sell out.
