The Future of Media + Technology

November 3, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

As the world moves online, the way we report and consume media is changing. Join us for a discussion with some of Chicago’s most successful media players on the future of journalism, content creation, and their disruption by today’s digital world.

We’ll discuss how technology – including mobile, social, video, and other new channels – has changed the face of communication and content, while simultaneously opening the door to a world of new voices in media. Our experts will also share their predictions for where the ever-changing media industry is headed and what they believe the future of media and all its opportunities will look like. If we’re lucky, these experts will even share their thoughts on this year’s election coverage, candidate strategies, and how media has impacted the election process.

This event is a part of our second annual Made in Chicago Week 2016, a series of free events and workshops highlighting all the great things being made in our city. We’re bringing together people from all backgrounds and industries – including tech, design, media, and food to foster collaboration through education. We’ve got an incredible lineup of events, panel discussions, free classes, and celebrations to welcome great times ahead.
