Thank you all for joining IPI’s first ever virtual World Congress. Missed some of the IPIWoCo 2020 sessions? Watch the video recordings and read our recap of the sessions here. We are more than an event. We’re a MOVEMENT FOR JOURNALISM. An annual gathering of journalists & editors from globally-renowned media, organized by the International Press Institute (IPI).

This year’s IPI World Congress was moved online for the first time in our 70 year history, but we hope to be back in real life in New York next year. We’re working with our hosts at Columbia University to set the dates for September 2021, so stay tuned here for any updates.
