Wan-Ifra organized World News Media Congress 2022 in Zaragoza from 28th to 30th September. With over 1200 participants from 75 countries, this was one of the biggest and most successful Congresses in recent years.
The Congress is the most important annual gathering of news media executives, typically attended by 700 to 1500 C-level decision-makers from more than 80 countries. The Congress hosts important community meet-ups.
As journalism emerges from a fragile world, we find the news industry stronger than ever. Many news publishers increasingly gravitate towards producing newsletters as a means of growing their audience.While news interest is high, sustainability, democratic freedoms, truth and prosperity are at risk.
The main aim of the annual Congress is to give a global perspective on the industry. Perspective on how newsrooms are reinventing themselves to deliver valued, trusted, quality journalism to their audiences despite resource challenges.
Perspective on winning publishing strategies against which to benchmark progress. Perspective on how innovation and leadership are critical when transforming a media business. Perspective on why a free press is so crucial – and so at risk – in all too many parts of the world. Most importantly, perspective on why all these cannot thrive without the other.
