The 90th annual INMA World Congress of News Media will take place in Paris from 23-28 April 2020 with a focus on re-aligning news brands for the changed consumer appetite. The INMA Congress in Paris will be a week of rejuvenation, discovery, and celebration of strategies, trends, and revenue models — against the backdrop of the city of lights (and a surprising media scene). The event will include a conference, study tours, seminars, an awards dinner, and an exclusive reception and tour of the world-famous, Louvre.
The INMA World Congress attracts senior management from the leading news media companies in 40+ countries including chief executive officers, publishers, general managers, digital leaders, advertising executives, audience executives, marketing executives, editors, and researchers.
The INMA Media Conference is an intense two-day focus on strategy and trends from the world’s top news media companies. This centerpiece of World Congress includes the keynotes, panels, and interviews – with a twist of what makes New York the media capital of the world.
