Programme | World News Media Congress 2017

Programme

2017 is shaping up to be a critical year for professional journalism. While the need to build a sustainable business remains a top priority in boardrooms, rebuilding trust and distinguishing quality news requires equal, urgent attention.

The World News Media Congress will continue this year sharing the best realisations from an industry in profound transformation: changing management culture, innovation processes and the relationship with readers and advertising clients.

While mischievous misinformation and fake news are partly to blame for many of 2016’s lapses, deep reflection is needed in 2017 to ensure our journalism practices are resilient and sustainable for the new, tech-driven and political realities.
