Further Information

Traditional newsrooms need to be fast and agile to respond to competition from digital startups. Yet print products also need to be slower, more magazine like to hold onto readership and revenue. Can these two dynamics survive in your newsroom or will print culture continue to inhibit digital success?

Join the International Newsroom Summit in Amsterdam on 13-14 October and see how successful editors are syncing their newsrooms to the digital world.
Over one and a half days, we will hear how people and processes are being managed to ensure growth in audience, engagement and loyalty.

You will get practical take-home tips, case studies and inspiration to help you compete.

We have teamed up with the Online News Association (ONA) to bring leading digital thinkers to Amsterdam. The Online News Association is a nonprofit membership organization for digital journalists, connecting journalism, technology and innovation.

Issues we will cover include:

  • How to prevent your newsroom culture blocking change
  • Smart new ways to reach your audience
  • Metrics that matter
  • The ethical conundrums of the digital space
  • Engagement success stories: get, grow and talk
  • Myths about mobile
  • Lessons from start-ups
  • A host of digital tools are free and effective. Why aren’t you using them?
