The Online News Association Conference, along with the Online Journalism Awards banquet, has become the premier gathering of highly engaged digital journalists who are shaping the future of media.

Record-breaking numbers of journalists travel to ONA’s conference each year to learn about new tools, techniques and technologies, to discuss advancements and challenges in the industry, take advantage of the rare opportunity to network face-to-face, and share best practices with peers from all over the map.

They also come to soak up the vibrant entrepreneurial spirit that distinguishes ONA conferences. ONA conference attendees are a tech-savvy bunch. They include producers, content editors, technologists, programmers, designers and newsroom decision-makers from major media markets, independent websites and leading academic institutions interested in emerging practices in news gathering, software, hardware, content and distribution platforms.

ONA24 is happening Sept. 18-21 in Atlanta. Contact Hanaa Rifaey, Head of Strategic Partnerships, to learn more about being a sponsor or exhibitor at the next ONA annual conference.
