Overview

Attending our annual Republishing Conference 2018 will provide the opportunity for your teams to understand how the FT continues to be a leader in the competitive, volatile publishing and economic climate.

By addressing key issues such as how we navigate fake news and provide rich journalism for our readers, your teams can learn from our top-performing, award winning editorial teams.

Complimented by commercial topics and advice from the experts, the agenda will explore how technology, data, platforms and insights are used, to how we approach storytelling and our innovative product offerings that ensure our business model is sustainable.

With an incredibly strong lineup of speakers, we welcome debate and challenging ideas to create the best outcome for all, celebrated with an evening dinner for social opportunities.

This event is by invitation only and free to attend.
