News at the Speed of Life: A Global Conversation on the Reinvention of Journalism
The International Council, a global forum for leading media and technology innovators and policy makers, convened an intimate gathering of more than sixty top media executives, front-line journalists, news innovators, and thought-leaders for a summit on ensuring a future for quality news and information. After a welcome reception on April 25, we gathered April 26 at Madrid’s state-of-the-art Caixa Forum for a full day of discussion followed by a private tour and dinner at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum of Art.
Featuring presentations showcasing new ideas and business models, and a dialogue format in which everyone gets a microphone and a chance to contribute, IC2012 Madrid was a truly interactive conversation.
