Special Events & Networking


Come ready to network and share with colleagues.

GIJN conferences offer cutting-edge training from the best in the business. But they’re also the perfect time to meet new friends and brainstorm about story ideas and the latest techniques. Often the greatest impact of our conferences is from informal conversations in the hallways and at the restaurants and bars. We’ve seen great collaborations, dynamic new startups, and extraordinary stories all result from our attendees having a drink together.

In that spirit, we’ve designed the program to give you plenty of time to network. There are 30-minute breaks between sessions, so you can talk one-on-one to the panelists and other colleagues. There will be special networking sessions, too, on key topics like how to strengthen investigative journalism across Asia.

Be sure to join us on Thursday evening, October 4, for a welcome reception. There will be cocktails and appetizers, and our local host — Korea Center for Investigative Journalism (Newstapa) — promises some grand entertainment.

And don’t miss the Saturday evening banquet. We’ll hear from the keynote speaker (to be announced) and there will be entertainment, plenty to eat and drink, and lots to talk about.
