Co-organized by the Asia chapter of the Asian American Journalist Association (AAJA) and the Journalism & Media Studies Centre @ HKU, the NewNowNext annual journalism conference aims to: help experienced journalists hone their craft and brush up on new media skills; nurture new journalists and help them attain the skills they need to succeed; foster communication and interaction between foreign journalists and their local counterparts; delve deeper into the biggest stories in Asia with experts and journalists who cover them; and become a platform for open discussion and a sharing of ideas on the challenges of working in Asia.
