About World Congress

The 88th Annual INMA World Congress of News Media takes us to the most talked-about city on Earth. Where the fake flirts with the fearless. Where the social has been anti-social of late. And where quantity has tried (and failed) to thwart quality. News media is renewing with re-discovered relevance worldwide … yet nowhere more so than Washington, D.C. Join the indispensable conference for strategists, catalysts, audience-builders, and revenue executives from the leading news media companies.
