Innovation, inspiration and interaction were the three themes of the events.

The Congress and forums provided participants with strategic knowledge and ideas for answering the challenges of the media industry's fast-paced transformation.

The World Newspaper Congress addresses management and business issues facing news media and examines emerging new business models and revenue streams.

The World Editors Forum provides newsroom personnel with an annual meeting place to examine innovations in journalism and newsroom organisation. Attendees will acquire new skills in data journalism, storytelling tools and techniques, plus much more.

The World Advertising Forum is the annual venue for publishers and advertising executives to share successful strategies for increasing advertising revenues from both digital and print – and how to show advertisers the full value of your audience.
