Our next newsrewired event is less than two months away – this will be Journalism.co.uk’s 19th digital journalism conference, and it will take place on 19 July at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.
As usual, the event will highlight and discuss the latest trends and techniques in journalism through a mix of panel discussions, workshops and spotlight talks, designed to equip delegates with the knowledge required to try it out in their own newsrooms.
Tickets for the one-day conference are available for £180+VAT and we will also be hosting a full day of training at Reuters on 20 July. Newsrewired+ tickets cost £368+VAT, and they provide access to newsrewired and one of three hands-on workshops the next day: digital storytelling, 360-degree video or social video.
The programme for newsrewired is now available and highlights from the topics we will explore on the day include:
A keynote on why we should be talking more about mobile, and using it more to reach our audiences

Maeve McClenaghan, investigative journalist, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Bureau Local team, will speak on a panel about how larger media organisations can connect with their audience on a local level.
‘I saw it on Facebook’: Takeaways about news brand attribution in social media and search
