The Monocle Media Summit 2021

What – and who – is making the news

Thursday 14 October

The Monocle Media Summit is back. Join our editors and producers for a look at the brands, correspondents and titles that are shaping the media landscape and steering its future. This year the event also marks Monocle 24’s 10th birthday so we are putting a special focus on broadcast media, the power of the newsroom in turbulent times and the role of the anchor in informing and entertaining the global public.
