The next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 7 November 2018 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 23rd conference, and as usual, we are aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.

The tickets (£190+VAT) give you access to the full-day conference on Wednesday 7 November 2018, and include lunch and refreshments, as well as after-event networking drinks and a delegate 'goodie' bag.

The programme will start with a keynote speech by Sarah Marshall, head of audience growth at Vogue International. She will talk data, key performance indicators (KPIs), plans and targets; patterns in traffic and reader behaviour; the Facebook algorithm and the growth of search; and how Vogue is engaging audiences on Instagram and Snapchat.

One of the key sessions of the day will be a discussion around what Generation Z (13-24) wants from news organisations.

By 2020, Gen Z is forecasted to make up 40 per cent of consumers in the United States. By that time, the Gen Z population may reach 2.56 billion globally.

From designing mobile-first, shareable story formats, to publishing on popular and lesser-known social platforms, the panel will explore how to adapt news content for the swipe-savvy Gen Z.

Other sessions and workshops we are planning:

  • artificial intelligence in the newsroom — often portrayed as a threat to journalism jobs, we will explore how AI can provide useful tools that expand the boundaries of reporters' work;

  • new social media strategies for content sharing — although Facebook demoted news in its News Feed, appetite for sharing news stories isn't slowing down. We will talk about the up-and-coming content-sharing platforms and strategies your publisher needs to know about;

  • building revenue with a membership programme — experts will discuss membership strategies in news organisations and explore what makes them successful
