The end of an era? PINA drops iconic convention title and goes with Pacific Media Summit.

Be part of one of the biggest media event in the Pacific, the Pacific Media Summit 2009, and tap the unparalleled opportunities for learning, knowledge sharing and networking the two-day conference and pre-summit workshops provide.

The first Pacific Media Summit in 2009, which has been scheduled on 26-30 July in Port Vila, Vanuatu, will promote a dynamic mix of content and format to enhance knowledge sharing and participation.

The Pacific Media Summit will gather some of the best minds and emerging media leaders to examine the issues of the conference theme, “Breaking Barriers- Access to Information”.

Expected to converge at the Summit are more than 200 CEOs from public and private media networks, media experts, consultants and academics as well as senior officials of development institutions representing over 25 countries worldwide.

The Pacific Media Summit will feature plenary sessions covering a wide spectrum of topics and issues such as the challenges facing media freedom in the region, battle to recruit and attract the right people.

Other topics include Climate Change and food security, new media, future plans for media assistance, Freedom of Information and how the Pacific is faring with the MDGs and the ripple effect from Global Financial meltdown.

There will be pre-summit workshops as well.

Another highlight of the Summit is a CEO roundtable discussion on recruiting, attracting and retaining qualified people amidst the fast changing and competitive media landscape within and outside Asia-Pacific.
