Open Call for N3Con’s 2018 Theme

Every year, the New.Now.Next Media Conference chooses a theme that sets the tone and direction for its programming. The panels and workshops provide a launch pad for thought-provoking conversations about the relevant issues in our dynamic industry.

N3Con 2017 in Hong Kong tackled “Social Disruption: Navigating the New Journalism,” as our industry struggled to define itself in the era of social media and misinformation. N3Con 2016 in Seoul addressed “Journalism in The Digital Age” as we explored the industry’s evolving, limitless workplace.

N3Con’s theme should reflect the most pressing issues facing both news producers and news consumers today and, perhaps more importantly, in the future.

We ask for your input about the key issues to raise at N3Con 2018, to be held in Hong Kong from May 25-27.

Our N3Con planning team will diligently review every suggestion to understand what you want to hear. If you don’t have a theme in mind, we will also welcome your ideas for panels, workshops and other programming independent of the theme.

Fill out the form here.

The N3Con 2018 theme will be revealed in November.

We’ve extended the deadline. Please submit your ideas by Oct. 7, 2017, at 11 pm HKT. Thank you for your opinions. See you next year at N3Con 2018!
