Due to unprecedented interest, the Global Investigative Journalism Conference has now sold out. We’re sorry we can’t accommodate everyone who wants to come, as we’ve now reached the capacity of our host facilities. There may be cancellations, so we encourage those still interested to get on the waiting list. We’ll have a terrific program ready to release soon, with a record 200 panels and workshops, along with 275 speakers from 50 countries. There will also be lots of coverage in multiple languages and streaming video of the showcase panels.
Faced with huge demand for this year’s Global Investigative Journalism Conference, GIJN and its partners have suspended ticket sales to ensure we have enough capacity to cope with the large crowds expected. An unprecedented number of fellows, co-sponsors, and other attendees has pushed the amount of participants to a record level. For the latest news on conference availability and programming, be sure to follow our hashtag, #GIJC19.
Meanwhile, we’re delighted to announce that Maria Ressa, a TIME Person of the Year in 2018, will be our keynote speaker. A global symbol of press freedom, Ressa and her muckraking Rappler news staff are under sustained political and legal attack by the Duterte government in the Philippines. Ms. Ressa is as inspiring as she is courageous.
