An ode to Times Square, a nod to inspiration

As news media tracks hot toward an impactful all-digital universe, vulnerabilities challenge and distract.

2023 marks a “midnight moment” in which it is neither today nor tomorrow.

How to lead and manage through this inspirational environment is the focus of the great in-person return to New York of the INMA World Congress of News Media.

Across five days of a horizon-defining conference, practical workshops, and a first-class study tour of Manhattan innovators, INMA’s 93rd Annual World Congress will surprise, delight, benchmark, and calibrate.

Punctuate this world-class experience with the unveiling of the best and brightest at the Global Media Awards dinner at the Harvard Club. Toast to the return of peer-to-peer networking at Central Park’s exclusive Tavern On the Green. Connect privately with news industry experts in Ask Me Anything sessions.

“The Midnight Moment” reflects the steadfast focus on the path to digital while managing the debris in our way:

  • The distractions: Pandemic. Recession. Supply chains. Rising prices. Subscription fatigue. Press freedom assaults. Tech disruptions. War.

  • All-digital media. Brand trust. Journalistic differentiation. Workforces reflecting communities. Leveraging tech. Embracing data. Reader obsession. Making journalism bullet-proof. Rallying workforces.

Walk away from INMA New York refreshed and inspired by our globally diverse network. Embrace the “midnight moment” – and its Times Square twist.
