The intersection of media, technology and social change has brought profound disruption to the business of news and storytelling. This East-West Center conference will bring hundreds of media professionals together to look at new-era trends and transformations in media and the news itself.

The conference will include speakers on transformative issues shaping today’s world, particularly in the Asia Pacific region — artificial intelligence, digitalization, China’s rise, populism and identity politics, future of trade, smarter cities, and emerging issues that may not have yet made the news.

  • What kinds of creative reporting and business models are emerging in the region to tell and deliver stories?
  • What is the level of trust between the public and media in Asia Pacific? How is misinformation being tackled?
  • What should be regulated on social media platforms in the region, and how?
