Promote your organization and share expertise and information with international journalists at the East-West Center’s 2022 International Media Conference!

This 3-day biennial conference is recognized for its on-the-ground updates on news and media issues, exceptional keynote speakers, in-depth panels of journalists and experts, media training workshops and unique networking opportunities. The 2018 conference in Singapore attracted more than 400 media professionals from 42 nations. Conferences have also been held in New Delhi, Yangon, Seoul, Hong Kong and Bangkok.

Our 2022 conference will be held in Honolulu June 27-30. This will be the first time IMC is hosted by a US city, one that many journalists have hoped for. Additionally, Honolulu is the home of the East-West Center.  Our conference theme, “Connecting in a Zero-Trust World,” is a topic that is not only important to journalists but every aspect of our society.

This conference will be a hybrid event. Participants will be able to join the event in-person or virtually, expanding the outreach and impact for IMC sponsors.

The third conference day will be shared with the EWC/EWCA International Alumni Conference, drawing diverse East-West Center alumni around the world and greatly expanding the audience accessible by our sponsors.
