The news industry's most provocative and most insightful experience PARIS, 20 - 21 NOVEMBER, 2019

What is News Xchange?

We are a two-day, annual conference focusing on bright ideas, opportunities and challenges for the international news industry. We bring together 600+ executives, journalists, presenters, bloggers and start-up entrepreneurs from all around the world to share, learn and cross-pollinate ideas with an array of experts, scientists, artists and thought leaders. We are the only conference that aims to remain intimate because we believe in the art of conversation.

What makes News Xchange such a vital event is the fact that it is structured as a guided experience. There's always an element of surprise, too -- someone I've never heard of who stands on stage and changes my view of the world.News Xchange 2017 delegate

News Xchange is coming to Paris

This year, News Xchange is delighted to be coming to Paris, partnering with EBU members, France Television and Radio France. Paris has long been known as The City of Light, a tribute to this world capital's role as the center of education and ideas during the Age of Englightenment. Beautiful, romantic, architecturally stunning, literary, magnificent. Paris. The birthplace of photography, fashion, and modern philosophy. Also a city full of history: from the grandeur of Versailles and the Bourbon courts, to the Revolution and to a long and proud history of protest in the name of egalite, fraternite and liberte. Paris, always beautiful, always complicated, always intriguing.

This will be our home for our 18th annual News Xchange, where we will take on the most challenging world issues as they affect the worlds of news and journalism. We will look for answers, of course, but even more importantly, we will look for insights and for wisdom. 


Our News Xchange 2019 venue

A defining landmark

News Xchange 2019 will be taking place in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Paris. The blend of UNESCO World Heritage architecture and world-class entertainment makes Paris a breath-taking city to visit. News Xchange has chosen one of the city's most outstanding venues for conferences and events: the Palais des Congrès d’Issy.

The first sight visitors have of the Palais des Congrès d’Issy is its rose-coloured Art Deco façade. The spirit of the 1930s is alive and well in the Palais, which was designed by Marcel Chappey, winner of the second prize at the prestigious Prix de Rome in 1925. In recent years, the Palais des Congrès d’Issy has played host to national and international conferences. Its unique cachet offers the perfect venue for News Xchange.



Situated along the Seine just outside Paris, the Palais des Congrès d’Issy is easily reached by Metro line 12, as well as the RER C and tram lines T2 and T3.
