SoE Conf 2017

Fighting for Real News Conference
12/13 November 2017, Cambridge 

Fighting for real news will top the agenda at the Society of Editors annual conference in Cambridge in November.

Taking place on Sunday 12 November and Monday 13 November, the agenda will focus on fighting fake news and the value of legitimate news sources, police and media relationships and counter-terrorism and funding journalism online.

The Society of Editors' Lecture will take place on the evening of Sunday 12 at the newly-built Tamburlaine Hotel, a stone’s throw away from Cambridge train station with the main day of conference sessions taking place at the University of Cambridge’s Clare College on Monday 13.

The conference, the major annual gathering of editors and senior figures from all sectors of the media, is guaranteed to make headlines with its keynote speakers and debates on the major issues facing 21st century journalism. This key arena for media debate is open to all and includes a significant emphasis on trusted journalism.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick will be one of the key speakers at the conference. The Commissioner, who earlier this year took over as the first female head of the Metropolitan Police in its 188-year history, will address delegates on the subject of police and media engagement in one of her first key speeches at the media event.

The event is sponsored by United Utilities, Google, Foot Anstey, PCS and Camelot, which has supported the Society of Editors since 2001.

Full details of how to book will be released in due course. Anyone wishing to register their interest or enquire about sponsorship opportunities should email
