INMA South Asia News Media Conference

Thursday and Friday, August 9-10

INMA South Asia News Media Conference

Shangri-La - Eros Hotel
New Delhi

The newsmedia industry today has an abundance of content but a poverty of attention. Moreover, trust has never been so premium as it is now. To add to it, social and digital pundits predict the demise of print media because of the ubiquitousness of technology. Print deserves to be evaluated as a trusted companion in the world of uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. This conference aims to celebrate the strength of the print media and over the two days the delegates will hear success stories of print medium that will counter the doubting Thomases about the future of print.

As every business has been experiencing world wide challenges due to technology, regulatory environment and predatory assaults, print media also has its share of challenges. This conference will deliberate on combating them as an industry. As they say, even a perfect storm doesn't last forever and print media has seen a lot of them and thwarted them successfully.
