Defending Media Freedom: The 20th Anniversary Conference

The Society of Editors marks two decades of campaigning to protect and maintain press freedoms in the UK at its annual conference this year.

Considered a highlight of the media calendar, the conference returns to London this year with the theme one of celebrating the successes of the last 20 years in preserving vital media freedoms, while looking ahead to battles yet to come.

The conference will be held at Stationers’ Hall on Tuesday November 12 and will include a Gala Dinner to mark the Society’s anniversary.

Senior national editors Ted Verity (Mail on Sunday), Alison Phillips (Daily Mirror) and Chris Evans (The Telegraph) are confirmed as panellists. Further speakers and details of panel discussions will be announced over the coming weeks.
