GEN Summit

A unique global gathering for media innovation

Welcome to the GEN Summit

Since 2011, the Global Editors Network invites opinion leaders in the media industry to discuss the latest trends shaping newsrooms. The event gathered 200 participants for its first edition, a number which has substantially grown to more than 750 in its latest edition in 2016. GEN's ability to bring senior media executives from all around the world has made GEN Summits truly global, more than 70 countries represented in 2016's edition, giving way for a true diversity of experience and opinions. Participants trust us for the quality of our speakers and sessions, the incredible networking experience they will have and the wide selection of relevant digital suppliers who are providing tools to newsrooms. GEN Summits are also the time when you discover the winners of the Data Journalism Awards, Startups for News and Editors Lab Final, which are GEN's much acclaimed programmes running throughout the year. The GEN Summit 2017 will take place in Vienna. 

The theme this year is 'From Post-Truth to Virtual Reality: Navigating Media's Future'. Visit the GEN Summit 2017 website to learn more about the new sessions added to the three-day schedule, the latest confirmed speakers and to take a glance at the social events
