Meet Us @ News Xchange

When: 15-16 November 2017 Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands What is it? The organisers label News Xchange as "the news industry's most provocative and most insightful experience." It brings together news executives, journalists, presenters, bloggers and start-up entrepreneurs from around the world with experts from other fields such as scientists, artists and thought leaders.

A main aim of the two-day event is to share and discuss ideas and the status quo of the news industry. Furthermore, trends and developments are shared in order to shape and prepare for the future of the news business.

News Xchange happens annually and is organised and supported by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). This year's host is the Dutch public service broadcaster NOS (Nederlandse Omroep Stichting).

The full programme of the conference can be found here.
