Press Gazette is hosting a month-long virtual conference in September which aims to provide media leaders with all they need to know about the future of media technology.
Each hour-long session will include:
- Insight from industry leaders
- Exclusive data and research
- Ideas for best practice from publishers and commercial partners
- Guaranteed actionable insight to help grow your business and create a more effective content strategy.
The digital news industry has largely had a successful pandemic as readers have seen the value of high-quality news and information.
This has been underlined by Press Gazette research which shows:
- surging share prices for news and information companies, with the leading companies adding $40bn to their stock-market valuations during the pandemic
- increased subscriptions for quality paywalled websites
- higher online engagement across the board.
This series of events will provide industry leaders with the information they need to take their business into the next phase of growth.
