Topical discussions on digital journalism trends, without the fluff. Great value for money”
An opportunity for national and local publishers to meet with the news specialists from the tech platforms. Useful and surprisingly cordial!
I went down from Newcastle for the 2017 summit, which is a whole (long) day away because, as most London people know, Newcastle is pretty near Reykjavik, though with worse transport connections... But I’ll be looking to go again to the next one.
It was very useful to hear what was effectively a series of Ted type talks, with Q&A sessions, on what exactly the major companies are doing and thinking in what remains the by ‘fast changing’ media &news environment.
It’s always been fast changing but after a couple of decades at mach speed it’s now gone into hyper drive and knowing what assumptions large companies are working on, and the conclusions they are then creating from them, is very useful for any media professional looking to try and make revenue in the space, however large or small their company may be..
“And it’s a great networking event as well....
so nothing not to like really! “A brief, intimate and brilliant event that robustly debated a wide range of issues and was highly informative. It was also an excellent, informal environment for networking and to encourage collaboration.”
