The Future of Regional Media - FoRM

What FoRM will we be striving for is at the centre of our 37th Annual Conference 2019, wich will be held in Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Serbia, on 30th and 31st May 2019

Quality content, dynamic and meaningful bonds with our audiences and ... look straight in the eyes of the digital technologies: are they our friends or are they a foe that is always attacking us?
We shall talk about all of that during our Annual Conference, hosted by RTV - Radio Television of Vojvodina.

Strategies predict a technology-driven future – from the rise of robot reporter machines, applying artificial intelligence in the newsrooms to real time analytics of content consumption and successful business models. Will the regional media embrace it? Is that what we are really after?

Is it technology that attracts our audience or quality journalism deriving from diversity of life, enfolding it to provide a vivid and in-depth reflection on reality? Is it the news content based on meticulous fact verification or is it the content born out of constructive journalism to engage audiences in public causes?

Maybe it is relevant content created in a relevant new format to reach as many users as possible through a multitude of channels... In short – what are the 50 ways to form a better future for regional media?
