Delegates to News World 2002 found themselves at a very different event to previous years - in many ways.
A different city - the wonderfully welcoming, witty and wise city of Dublin, one of the world’s truly great capitals.
A different venue - the Burlington Hotel, which not only has the space to accommodate a much wider and richer range of conference sessions and workshops, but also the best restaurant and bars News World delegates have ever experienced.
And most importantly, a different agenda - News World 2002 took the big global issues head on and brought journalists from all disciplines face to face with the politicians and news makers with whom they are so often in conflict. We revealed the findings of some vital broadcasting research, examined a courageous new campaign to protect journalists working in harm’s way and launched an education initiative to bring media academics and students to News World for the first time.
And by merging the NewsTech conference with News World itself, we ensured that the world’s leading manufacturers and service suppliers could debate the issues that matter with the senior executives and reporters who rely so heavily on their products.
The conference offered top-class sponsorship opportunities and this year's accompanying exhibition offered exhibitors a high-value way of reaching their focused market, providing the ideal platform to promote, demonstrate, or launch their latest services or technologies to leading industry players.
