An exclusive global gathering focusing on the importance of product in news media companies today.


Our 2019 edition will focus on the importance of product in today’s news media companies.
Product roles are increasingly becoming a must-have for news publishers wishing to strengthen their digital strategy. However, this often raises several questions and challenges. How to attract and retain such talent? What is their position in a management team and how do they relate with the editorial and business sides of a company? What potential tensions arise and how to solve them? What exactly is product culture and should it permeate your company’s internal mindset? Can product development help to foster internal collaboration?

DMNA19 will be tackling these and many more key issues around product in news media companies nowadays.

Stay tuned for the release of our conference agenda in the following weeks.


  • Deputy Head of Digital, The Times & Sunday Times, UK
  • Director of Innovation & Leadership, Craig Newmark J-School/CUNY, USA
