The GEN Summit 2016
Our next edition will take place in beautiful Vienna, Austria on the 15-17 June 2016
The GEN Summit is an event to bring change, introduce new tools, publish new studies, meet new colleagues and contribute to better journalism. It has become the industry’s leading conference for editors-in-chief and media innovators looking to implement new strategies. Since its inception in 2011, attendance has continually grown year on year making one of the most diverse media conference in terms of participants, partner engagement and media content.
It is no surprise that every year, companies choose the GEN Summit as a platform to launch new products as hundreds of media organisations and digital suppliers converge to discover the latest trends and products in the industry. During three days, GEN provides an ideal setting to expand your network and exchange ideas with companies facing similar challenges. Visit our GEN Summit 2015 page to discover last year's highlights.

The GEN Summit 2016 Exhibition
Part of the annual GEN Summit, the GEN Expo is a unique exhibition that provides media organisations with the opportunity to showcase their products, connect with potential customers and network with industry representatives in an intimate, professional setting.
The Expo is unique in its guaranteed visibility and impact for exhibitors with an enforced limit on the number of stands submitted, ensuring that the connection with the GEN network and the platform for driving business are unrivalled by other media events.
Each year, the number of stands are limited and they run out quickly well before the opening date. The exhibiting opportunity comes with a host of other branding opportunities, such as spots in online and printed communication, email blasts and one-on-one introductions and referrals to high-profile brands and figures.
The Expo is located in a central and strategic location within the venue. All 3 coffee breaks and lunches take place in the Expo in order to maximise engagement.
Stands come with Wi-Fi, standard furniture, multiplugs and a list of extras to complete your stand.
Previous exhibitors include: AP Video Hub, Bloomberg Content Services, Russia Today, ScribbleLive, Google News Lab, Wibbitz, Newscred, Parrot, The Guardian, Outbrain, Cxense, Al Jazeera, Storyful, New York Times Syndicate and many others...
The GEN Summit 2016 Masterclasses
A masterclass is a 45-minute bespoke workshop that is conducted during key intervals at the GEN Summit. Each masterclass is heavily promoted prior to the summit to raise awareness and attract the right audience for your brand. You can take advantage of a masterclass to connect with a specified pool of individuals, to release a product, or to provide in-depth analysis of any of your activities and programmes.
Each year, our masterclasses are sold out and usually seats are overbooked. This is an ample opportunity to provide awareness about your organisation through an audience that you know is keen and interested, and who can help you build real business connections.
A new development for the GEN Summit 2016 guarantees that time-slots for our eight masterclasses will never take place at the same time as a main-stage session. GEN Summit participants will have a choice between going to two different masterclasses at four different times during the conference. To avoid repeated content and direct competition, we make sure that your masterclass is not running at the same time as a company you might consider as a competitor.
Previous companies that have taught GEN Summit masterclasses include: Cxense, Al Jazeera, Google News Lab, Storfyful, Wibbitz, Piano Media, Chartbeat, Parse.ly, ScribbleLive and many others.
