Unparalleled Access to Top Newsrooms

Our Study Tours offer you coveted behind-the-scenes access to newsrooms, and the key people leading them, so that you can ask the critical questions and learn from their successes.

Peer-to-Peer Networking

WAN-IFRA Study Tours offer you valuable networking with your fellow Study Tour participants - giving you a platform to exchange best practices in newsrooms with global contacts. As stated by a 2017 Study Tour participant, "To me, it meant a lot having the conversations with the other participants about the impressions we took at the companies. I learned a lot - and it was a very good choice - with deep insights of the different companies. Didn't miss a thing." Martin Wilhelm, CEO, Heidenheimer Zeitung (Germany)
