Since 1948, the World News Media Congress is the most important annual gathering of news media leaders. Spread over three days, the Congress, its various summits and fora will address key issues facing our industry. The many events, including Gala Dinner and Reception, offer unmatched networking opportunities for delegates, speakers and technology partners.

The 2023 programme will have two main streams:

World Media Leaders Summit
A focused conference stream for publishers, owners, CEOs and all those invested in building sustainable news organisations. This year’s theme is Redefining news in the new normal: what do audiences want?

The World Editors Summit
For editorial leaders who put journalism and its freedoms first when leading their newsrooms through these challenging times.


In addition, the three days include different awards, community meetups and unrivalled social and networking events.
