Copenhagen to host Wan-Ifra’s World News Media Congress 2024

In partnership with Danske Medier, the Association of Danish Media

The event will bring together some of the media industry’s sharpest, bravest and most innovative individuals, people from all continents

The Wan-Ifra congress, which draws together media leaders, journalists, and editors from around the world, will take place at the Tivoli Congress Center.

“It is an honor for us to organize the 2024 Congress in partnership with Danske Medier. Denmark, as a role model for press freedom and human rights, embodies the values of Wan-Ifra. Denmark’s vibrant news media industry and deep-seated commitment to freedom of expression provide a roadmap for the global news industry, which has been buffeted by seismic shifts in media consumption and the move to digital. We are confident that the Copenhagen Congress will be a truly memorable experience,” said Vincent Peyrègne, Wan-Ifra CEO.

Mads Brandstrup, CEO of Danske Medier, said, “The Danish Media Association is extremely proud to host the World News Media Congress in Copenhagen in 2024. With the strong Danish tradition for press freedom, trust in the media, and unique media pluralism, we look forward to facilitating the conversation about the future of the media in a digital age. We must work to create a strong foundation for the media business worldwide, which is becoming more digital. The most important prerequisite for true independence is economic independence from state and private interests. The digital transformation and the battle against tech giants require an intense focus on innovative solutions in user experience, subscription types, and advertising, especially with the fast-emerging challenges and possibilities from artificial intelligence which requires comprehensive regulation that guarantees real and fair competition”.

The World News Media Congress has been the annual meeting of news publishers, editors, and owners from all over the world since 1948. It is hosted in a different city each year. The 2022 Congress in Zaragoza drew more than 1,200 media professionals from over 75 countries for three days of conferences, executive meetings, networking, and social events.

This year the World News Media Congress will be held from the 28 – 30 June in Taipei, Taiwan.

The event will bring together some of the media industry’s sharpest, bravest, and most innovative individuals, people from all continents who are redefining the news business and journalism as they seek a sustainable footing for media.

With over 50 speakers from six continents, headliners include Nobel Laureate and Rappler CEO, Maria Ressa, The Philippines; Joseph Kahn, executive editor of the New York Times, USA; Patrícia Campos Mello, journalist at Folha de S.Paulo, Brazil; Michael Miller, Chairman of News Corp, Australia; Styli Charalambous, CEO, Daily Maverick and Stig Ørskov, CEO, JP/Politiken Media Group, Denmark.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
