After a few years of reflection, the Belgian print market has adopted a research project that is ambitious on all aspects. The final goal is to produce daily reach (for newsbrands) and issue readership (for magazines), take into account the reach accumulation for magazines and merge all this with the internet survey figures to include PC, Tablet and Mobile consumption. This should result in an exploitation file on a daily basis that allows analyses over time and over platforms, for newsbrands and magazines combined. Will we be able to take all the hurdles?

111,000 or 37% of European journalists work on non-standard contracts and their number is growing fast: between 1995 and 2003 by 38%. In France or Germany the share of non-standard-employed journalists has reached 60%. Non-standard meaning: independent contractors, or freelancers. This shift in the labor market is obviously not a phenomenon of journalism, or creative industries, or Europe. Uber has become the largest taxi company in the world with 1 million drivers without hiring any of them full-time. Is the news publishing industry next to adopt this ‘feature’ of the on-demand economy? Imagine a world where Facebook becomes “the Uber for Journalists”? How will a news ecosystem actually work without legacy publishers in the value chain? An intriguing look ahead on the future of work in the news media industry and our business models as publishers, in this opening keynote presentation.

We'll also be laying the foundations for Friday's "unconference session" during the evening 😉.
Meeting room: Mediterranée
There’s so much more knowledge in a conference room than
what is presented on stage. INMA will attempt to harvest that
knowledge in this unconventional “unconference session”: also called an Open Space conference, in other words: it is a participant-driven meeting. Under
the guidance of 2 world-class experts, conference participants
discuss different issues of our industry. No keynote presentations,
just INMA members sharing their ideas, thoughts and debating and
working out our common future.
The outcome of each stream group will be presented in a summarising session. How to prepare for an unconference?
