Monetise your content with relevant startups

Tel Aviv | 4–7 November 2019

 

The Global Editors Network (GEN) organises yearly study tours for editors and senior media executives to help them make the best use of latest media innovations and technology. GEN study tours keep the industry professionals in the vanguard of the field. We organise meetings with both industry giants and up-and-coming actors, provide opportunities for hands-on experiences and peer-learning. Each study tour runs for four days and is limited to 15 participants to allow for exhaustive discussions with the startups, the news suppliers and the newsrooms.

 

Time to change your CMS! New York City | 7–10 October 2019

Current Content Management Systems are not adapted to mobile and social media-based news consumption, which in turn require new ways of monetizing content. The goal of this study tour is to discover new CMS and understand how they can help overcome the challenges of tomorrow’s news industry. We will get a hands-on experience with both proprietary (i.e. ARC) and latest open source systems (i.e. Newspack).

The study tour will enable you to: 

  • understand why current CMS are potentially outdated
  • find solutions based on the latest trends in news consumption and users’ needs
  • find better ways to monetise content
  • gain a deeper understanding of the advantages of proprietary versus open source systems
  • visit startups focusing on AI and blockchain solutions
