News World Completes Its Next Generation Plans
News World has finalised the programme for its innovative Next Generation initiative · a series of top level discussions and debates designed to bring media academics, their students and industry professionals together for the first time. The sessions are all carefully scheduled so that Next Generation delegates don·t miss a moment of the main News World debates and also have plenty of time to visit an exhibition crammed with the leading edge technologies that drive the news business.
Here are the specially-tailored Next Generation events. You can also take a look at the complete News World agenda.
