The IMPRESS Trust in Journalism Conference 2018 is on its way!

A unique one-day event to discuss what the independent news sector looks like today, how it is innovating for the future, and what it needs in order to thrive. The programme includes a combination of big debates and practical sessions. This is an opportunity for all attendees to network and take with them new skills, contacts, ideas and inspiration. 

This Annual Conference is built around one of the core values of IMPRESS: supporting trust in journalism.

The panels

Each session will focus on different aspects of the independent news sector that add to the value of trust in journalism: high-quality journalism, press sustainability in the digital age, innovation and the policies the independent news sector needs.

This includes the challenges this sector faces in order to thrive, as well as successful strategies independent publishers have implemented recently. Some of the key debates will be around:

  • What makes high quality journalism

  • The potential of platforms-publishers collaboration

  • The latest innovations in independent news

  • How can digital and media policy support independent news

  • ... and more!
