Taiwan to host World News Media Congress 2021 and reschedules Zaragoza to 2022
Due to continued uncertainties and travel constraints around the COVID-19 pandemic, WAN-IFRA has called off the World News Media Congress, which was initially planned for Zaragoza, Spain, in September 2020. Meanwhile, the association has named Taiwan as its venue for the 2021 Congress and rescheduled the 2022 Congress in Zaragoza. WAN-IFRA CEO Vincent Peyregne said, “It is with a great deal of disappointment that we have had to cancel this year’s World Congress. Two years from now, we will make good our promise to take the World News Media Congress again to Zaragoza in 2022.”
Next year, the world’s press is invited to Taipei, Taiwan, from June 23 – 25, 2021, to attend the 73rd World News Media Congress including the 28th World Editors Forum and the 5th Women in News Summit. The 2021 event will be organised by WAN-IFRA in partnership with UDN (United Daily News Group), one of Taiwan’s leading media and technology companies. The events will take place at Taipei´s Nangang Exhibition Center.
