After recently calling for expressions of interest in our trip to attend the Online News Association 2019 (ONA19) conference, Mediaweek is now looking to secure several more media professionals to join the tour.
The highlight of the trip will be four nights in New Orleans attending the biggest annual exchange of ideas and innovation in the global news business.
It’s the 20th anniversary at the Online News Association, and it is planning its biggest and best events ever. To celebrate the milestone, the ONA is bringing the annual conference to New Orleans, home to some of the richest history, food and music and in the United States.
ONA19 will bring together some of the most innovative minds in digital media, including journalists, media executives, product teams, entrepreneurs and educators.
Mediaweek editor James Manning: “I attended the 2017 ONA conference in Washington DC and was overwhelmed by the information and insights on offer. I got to meet some of the great speakers and hear about media businesses big and small and how they are adapting business models and adopting technology to benefit their news gathering and publishing businesses.”
