(IrishExaminer.com) -- U2 frontman Bono is guest speaker to 1,200 publishers, newspaper executives and editors who are gathering in Dublin this week for a major think tank on the future of the newspaper industry.
The World Association of Newspapers annual conference will be told that, despite prophecies to the contrary, new technologies like the Internet and mobile phones have allowed newspapers to reach more readers than ever before.
This annual conference of WAN is the biggest single media event to be staged in the Republic.
Ever major newspaper title in Ireland, Europe, the United States, Africa, South America and the Middle East is sending a representative to the 56th World Newspaper Congress.
The congress will tackle a wide range of issues and Mr Timothy Balding, the director-general of WAN, said the organisation was delighted with the 1,200 sign-up.
“I think the Dublin figures are truly remarkable, especially in the light of the Iraqi conflict and the global economic situation, as well as the SARS outbreak,” he said.
Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, will be among those speaking at the congress today. He is expected to stress the central position of newspapers in Irish society.
The World Editors’ Forum will look at the challenge of developing editorial excellence while also dealing with the demands for efficiency in the newsroom.
At today’s opening ceremony, the president of the NNI, Mr Gavin O’Reilly, will deliver an opening address, followed by the Taoiseach and Mr Seok Hyun Hong, the president of WAN.
