INMA Media Subscriptions Summit

Wednesday and Thursday, April 18-19

Analytics Study Tour Preview

Reuters
30 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London

Digital subscriptions represent the hottest subject in news media worldwide in 2018. In this two-day summit in London, INMA will bring together the best practices internationally in how to acquire and retain subscribers, how to benchmark success, how to reduce churn, and how to make your entire news operation responsible for subscription success.

Simulcast Registration

The main hall at Reuters sold out for the INMA Media Subscriptions Summit, but INMA has secured additional seating in the conference center’s lounge area and a nearby private room. The Simulcast Registration provides you access to the Summit’s video stream, all Summit presentations, all lunches and breaks, and all attendees. You have access to interact with speakers and attendees and you will be included in the event’s attendee list. The only restriction is that your registration does not provide access to the room where the sessions are held live. Simulcast Registration seating is in adjoining areas and is limited. Once all Simulcast Registration tickets are sold, there is no possibility for additional registrations. Paid registrations will be prioritised.
