Verify, verify, verify – the Future of News?

DW Innovation @ NewsXchange

From 12 to 14 November 2014 we had the opportunity to attend the NewsXchange 2014 conference in Prague, Czech Republic. “We” in this case means DW Innovation’s Wilfried Runde and Jochen Spangenberg, completed by Ellen Schuster of DW’s Strategic Programme Planning Department.

The annual conference is one of Europe’s prime events for the news industry. It brings together experts from all over the world. This year’s headcount came down to an astonishing 520 delegates – a first time ever sell-out in the NewsXchange history. Most attendants were either members of the broadcasting and electronic media industries or news agencies. Others came from solution and service providers making their way to the Czech capital to attend an inspiring and well-organized event that was well worth the visit.

News coverage and reporting from all angles

Being future-of-media-savvy people, we used the opportunity to discuss the state of affairs in newsgathering and reporting, and to find out about current and new trends and challenges.
