t is our pleasure to announce that this year’s Prague Media Point Conference, under the title “What’s Working,” will take place on December 5-7, 2019, in Prague, Czech Republic.
Tomes have been written and numerous events have been held over the past decade lamenting the plight of the media in the modern world. Much less attention has been paid to what’s actually working to challenge negative trends, especially beyond the success stories of the big, well-funded players in the United States and Western Europe. But hopeful examples do exist that are having real impact, with the possibility of adaption and replication.
The 2019 edition of Prague Media Point will highlight these types of inspiring examples and more. We will offer a mix of scholarly presentations, including keynote addresses; sessions with innovators explaining their solutions; and networking opportunities to promote the exchange of know-how. As in years past, the conference will have a special regional focus on Central and Eastern Europe, though we look forward to covering cases and trends from other parts of the world.
All participants will have an opportunity to present their projects in a special session for quick presentations.
Join us to:
- Learn about the latest examples providing hope amid the doom and gloom of media forecasts.
- Network with leading professionals and experts in an informal setting.
- Stay for the Christmas markets and the stunning scenery of Prague.
Conference attendees are encouraged to present their best practices. The call for propsals is open until August 31, 2019. More information is availble here.
