New Media Europe is offering press passes for a two-day new media conference next September at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, UK. The press pass is available to editorial staff only (e.g., editors, journalists, reporters). Interested parties will only gain passes if they are covering the new media tools discussed during the conference. These topics include but are not limited to podcasting, social media, blogging, virtual hiring, and entrepreneurship.
A limited number of press passes are available. Due to the evolving nature of the industry, only select qualifying members of the press will gain free access to the event.
