Event description

Description

You're invited

We hope you'll join us and other journalists, media executives, technologists and entrepreneurs from around the world for the 2018 Collaborative Journalism Summit.

This year's conference builds on the success of our 2017 summit, which focused on case studies of successful collaborative projects and featured keynote speakers representing The Panama Papers, Google News Lab and Electionland.

The 2018 Collaborative Journalism Summit is set for May 10-11 at the new School of Communication and Media building on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. The conference will kick off with a keynote speaker and reception on the evening of Thursday, May 10, and continue all day Friday.

We expect to announce our roster of speakers in the coming weeks.

Space is limited to the first 180 registrants, so reserve your spot today. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to keep costs low for the conference; early-bird reservations are $35 a ticket until March 31, and $50 a ticket after that. The ticket includes appetizers and cocktails on Thursday evening and breakfast, lunch and snacks on Friday.

Also, we want to make this conference as responsive to your needs as possible -- so we need your help. If you would like to suggest discussion topics or speakers, please click here to submit your ideas.

If you are interested in sponsoring the conference, click here to view the sponsorship packages, or contact Stefanie Murray at murrayst@mail.montclair.edu to discuss a specialized package.

In the meantime, you can also subscribe to our collaborative journalism newsletter, written by Melody Kramer, for more updates and information.

Hope to see you on May 10!


TRANSPORTATION DETAILS

If you are driving: The summit will be held in the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University. Park in the Red Hawk Parking Deck on the campus of Montclair State University. We'll give you a pass so parking will be free. From there you can walk to the School of Communication and Media; exit out of the parking deck on the 4th floor and walk straight ahead on to campus; you'll see construction directly in front of you. Veer along the walking path to the left of the construction and follow the path that hugs the construction fence straight back. The School of Communication and Media Building will be ahead and to the left at the end of the path.

If you take the train: On NJ Transit, take the Montclair-Boonton Line and get off at Montclair Heights, NOT at the Montclair State University stop. (There are several stops in Montclair.) Coming off the train, you will make a right onto Normal Avenue and cross the street, walking on the edge of campus. Make a left on College Avenue and walk on to campus. You'll pass our Red Hawk statue and College Hall, which is under construction, on your right. After you walk past College Hall, follow the walking path that veers right and hugs the construction fence; follow that path straight back and the School of Communication and Media Building will be ahead and to the left at the end of the path.

If you are flying in: Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is the closest airport. If flying in to Newark doesn't work for you, you could also fly in to NYC and drive or take public transit in to New Jersey.

Ridesharing: If you plan to use a ride-sharing service to get to the summit, we'll be setting up a special $5-off coupon through Lyft. We'll all registrants the code closer to the event date.

HOTEL
