International: 58th World Newspaper Congress and Editors Forum to be held in Seoul from May 29

The 58th World Newspaper Congress, 12th World Editors Forum and the Info Services Expo will be held in Seoul, from May 29 to June 1, 2005. The Congress, which addresses the business concerns of media companies, and the Editors Forum, which addresses newsroom issues, will focus on exchanging knowledge and best practices.

According to Seok Hyun Hong, President, World Association of Newspapers, "The Congress will focus on winning strategies for newspapers in today's media environment, featuring a wide variety of in-depth case studies and presentations from the most successful media companies and best-known media personalities worldwide."

The impact of Metro (international newspaper group) and other new products is one of a wide range of topics that will be examined at the Congress, Forum and Expo in Seoul, organised by the Paris-based World Association of Newspapers. More than 1,000 publishers, chief editors, managing directors, CEOs and other senior newspaper executives from 80 countries are expected at the event.

The Seoul Congress will also focus on key developments in the newspaper industry like the impact of new wireless technologies on newspapers, whether the global move to compact newspapers has been a success, how the migration of advertising from print to online has progressed in the past twelve months, how new approaches to distribution and pricing are attracting new audiences and how they could change the commercial models of newspapers.

Pelle Tornberg, President and CEO of Metro International, will be among the featured speakers at the event. Other speakers include Michael Grabner, Deputy Chairman of the Georg von Hiltzbrinck Group in Germany, Bengt Braun, President and CEO of Bonnier in Sweden, Shinichi Hakoshima, President of The Asahi Shimbun, Japan, Sandy Romualdez, President of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, and Alejandro Junco de la Vega, President and CEO of the Reforma Group in Mexico.

In the run-up to the annual conference, the World Editors Forum (WEF) has published a new guide for working editors called 'Trends in Newsrooms 2005'. This first-time report focuses on best practices in newsrooms around the world. The World Editors Forum conference, which runs concurrently with the World Newspaper Congress, will provide "a wide range of debates about editorial quality, newsroom management and online strategies," according to Bertrand Pecquerie, Director, WEF.
