What is the 2013 NewNowNext Media Conference? It’s a forum for the media community in Asia to refine craft and learn from each other. In the last two years, it has gathered more than 100 journalists and experts from all over Asia. Last year we looked at the Apple in China story, mobile journalism, global finance amid Beijing’s leadership change and branding and blogging. In 2011, we discussed the Great Firewall, Japan’s Fukushima crisis, backpack journalism and post J-life.
If you’d like to help us plan the regional event or if you have any questions, reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
