About INMA Washington

The 88th Annual INMA World Congress of News Media takes us to the most talked-about city on earth. Where the fake flaunts with the fearless. Where the social has been anti-social of late. And where quantity has tried (and failed) to thwart quality. Out of the hottest fire comes the strongest steel. News media is renewing with re-discovered relevance worldwide ... yet nowhere more so than Washington, D.C. Prioritise INMA in 2018: see why, see how.
