Events in Europe have focused attention on the challenges ahead for news publishers.  Sustainability, democratic freedoms, truth and prosperity are at risk. Join us as we share experiences, celebrate successes and unite for the struggles ahead.


Here is the link to our most recent  (virtual) World News Media Congress (29.11. – 2.12.2021). Impressions from our Congress in Glasgow in 2019:

The World News Media Congress is the most important annual gathering of news media leaders and has been so since 1948. It is organised and hosted by WAN-IFRA, the World Association of News Publishers, at a different location each year. Typically some 700 to 1500 C-level decision-makers from more than 80 countries have attended the physical event. When Congress was forced to go virtual, over 1000 news media leaders, from 80 countries, joined online discussions.

The Congress hosts important community meetups. Chief Editors meet for the annual World Editors Forum and Women in News gather for their yearly summit.


Your safety is our top priority. We are working with our Spanish partner Henneo and the Spanish government on the logistics of hosting a global event with minimal risk. We will keep you updated on health, safety and travel regulations. In the event that we are unable to host the Congress as planned, we will offer alternatives, or, in the event of cancellation, refund your registration fees.


Thank you to our partners and sponsors for their support.
