Prague Media Point 2019
Tomes have been written and numerous events have been held over the past decade lamenting the plight of the media in the modern world. Much less attention has been paid to what’s actually working to challenge negative trends, especially beyond the success stories of the big, well-funded players in the United States and Western Europe. But hopeful examples do exist that are having real impact, with the possibility of adaption and replication.
The 2019 edition of Prague Media Point conference highlighted these types of inspiring examples and more. We offered a mix of scholarly presentations, including keynote addresses; sessions with innovators explaining their solutions; and networking opportunities to promote the exchange of know-how. As in years past, the conference had a special regional focus on Central and Eastern Europe, though we also covered selected cases and trends from other parts of the world.
