19-20 September, 2017: Future of Publicism, Denmark

A conference for mainly local, regional and national media with a publicism background. At the conference, challenges of digitalisation, globalisation, social media etc. will be addressed, as well as the changing role of the media in democratic societies. The ambition is to discuss solutions to those issues inspired by lectures given by media executives and media experts. Themes will include how to add more quality to journalistic content, how to get in contact and dialogue with current and new users, how to take advantage of the new technology, and how to develop a profitable and sustainable media business in an ever-growing digital world.
