Senior national newspaper editors will be joining delegates at this year’s 20th anniversary conference staged by the Society of Editors in November.

Confirmed as taking part in the event are Alison Phillips, Editor of the Daily Mirror and Chris Evans, Editor of The Telegraph.

The editors will take to the platform to debate the most pressing matters in the UK media when the conference is staged at Stationers’ Hall in London on November 12.

“I’m delighted that some of the strongest voices in the industry will be joining us in November to give us their thoughts on the challenges facing the UK media as we approach the end of what has been a tumultuous year for news and challenges to the press,” commented Ian Murray, executive director of the Society of Editors.

“No one can truly say even now what the political and media landscape will look like by the autumn, but we can be certain that our panellists will be at the heart of the debate and their observations will be essential listening for anyone involved in the industry and beyond.”


Alison Phillips was named as the Editor of the Daily Mirror in 2018 and was made Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Trinity Mirror papers (now Reach) in 2016.  

Chris Evans has been Editor of The Telegraph since 2014 and was Head of News at The Telegraph from 2007 to 2014.

More names of panellists and keynote speakers attending the conference will be announced in the coming weeks.
