Be a Sponsor

Promote your organization and share expertise and information with hundreds of international journalists

This 3-day biennial conference is recognized for its on-the-ground updates on news and media issues, exceptional keynote speakers, in-depth panels of journalists and experts, media training workshops and unique networking opportunities. The 2016 conference in New Delhi attracted 400 media professionals from 42 nations. Conferences have also been held in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Seoul and Yangon.

Singapore is the perfect host nation for the 2018 conference on June 24-27. Since urbanization and technology are key shapers of global societies, the conference will spend the last day looking at what makes Singapore one of the most “smart” and connected tech hub cities in the world. Participants will be able to choose from a diverse selection of city tours.
