Conference 2020

Event Date: November 9, 2020

In 2020, the Society will be holding their conference on 9 and 10 November 2020 – a must-attend media event of the year. The dates are subject to confirmation in light of the Covid-19 crisis.  

In 2019, the Society’s 20th anniversary conference marked 20 years of defending media freedom. Held in the historic Stationers’ Hall in London, speakers included the Head of Counter Terrorism for the Met, AC Neil Basu, and former BBC News war reporter Kate Adie. 

Editors from across the UK joined delegates to discuss the most pressing issues facing the industry and the finale was marked by an anniversary gala dinner to celebrate the Society’s campaigning work on behalf of the media since 1999.
