News Impact Summit - 15 October 2018


Local News & Community Engagement

Local News & Community Engagement

On Monday 15 October, the News Impact Summit will take place in Cardiff, the third location to host News Impact in the UK, after London and Manchester.

The event will focus on Local News & Community Engagement and will explore challenges and opportunities that will define the future of regional, local, and hyperlocal news.

The News Impact Summits are organised by the European Journalism Centre and powered by the Google News Initiative. They can be joined free-of-charge by anyone who's interested in exploring the future of the media industry and learning from leading experts in the field.

Building on the successful 2017 edition in Manchester, the event in Cardiff will also explore how newsrooms understand and engage with their communities. The programme will feature examples of how local newsrooms are trying to innovate products and workflows to better serve and inform their communities, as well as to monetise this relationship.

The Summit will bring together leading editors, journalists and experts from across the UK, including speakers from Reach plc, The Bureau Local, The Bristol Cable, the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, and many more.

The programme will include inspirational talks and dynamic conversations, along with networking opportunities to meet and learn from local and international media experts. Attendees will also have the opportunity to join the debate with the experts during breakout sessions that will facilitate participation and foster collaboration around some of the key areas that will shape the future of local news.
