Coming soon ...
INMA will guide you through news industry best practices and strategies from the leading European news media companies, with a special emphasis on Belgian media this year.
The 2023 Antwerp European News Media Conference marks the 50th time that European colleagues have gathered under the INMA banner. Since 1971, INMA believes there is a distinctive European media conversation that requires spotlighting. This has typically been done with an annual European News Media Conference, and we added a study tour component in 2015 – with great passion as there is an appetite for deep dives into local media scenes. The conference and study tour are practical and down-to-earth.
Antwerp, the largest city in Belgium, and home to the headquarters of two of Europe’s media giants: Mediahuis and DPG Media, as well as INMA Europe's office. Centrally located in Europe, Antwerp is easily accessible by flying into Brussels International Airport, then an easy 20-minute train ride (trains every 30 minutes) from the airport to the city-centre of Antwerp.
Join us for a deep dive into the Belgian media scene; how these media companies keep growing, transforming and innovating. And a touch of Antwerp gastronomy while you’re there; with 12 restaurants awarded with one Michelin star.
