We are very excited to announce that Dmitry Shishkin will be joining us at our upcoming Newsrewired conference as keynote speaker on 27 November 2019 at Reuters, London.
Audience engagement is an essential component of success in every news organisation. Figuring out how to produce content that your readers and viewers are genuinely interested in is key to make them come back – and pay – for more.
In his keynote speech, Dmitry Shishkin will talk about his favourite subject – the intersection of product, content and data – and will share findings around Culture Trip’s full-funnel commissioning process, automation and machine learning.
His team produce hundreds of multi-formatted editorial pieces created by freelance contributors from all over the world. They aim to inspire people to travel across their cultural boundaries and – ultimately – convert them into paying consumers.
