Join editors from The Wall Street Journal’s live journalism team for an inside look at developing engaging, newsmaking live events for hybrid audiences. The Journal’s live journalism portfolio spans multi-day events such as The Future of Everything FestivalWSJ Tech Live, and CEO Council to news-reactive analysis for readers on topics ranging from retail investing to natural disasters. In the last year, the Journal has pivoted its busy calendar of in-person events to a robust offering of virtual experiences, resulting in audience growth and increased engagement.

This session is designed for:
