European Publishers Council Seminar: "Understanding and Reporting EU Media Business Issues" (16 September 2003)

Renaissance Brussels Hotel , Rue du Parnasse 19, 1050 Brussels


The European Publishers Council (EPC), organised a high-level seminar on improving the communication of EU media and media-related issues. The one-day event was held in Brussels and aimed to be informative and practical as well as an excellent networking opportunity. Attendance was by invitation only.

EU correspondents are generalists following all EU policy issues with a remit that covers all the EU institutions plus NATO and, often, Benelux. This being the case, issues are covered as news stories only and only then when they are topical for the day.

The objective of our event was to improve member-state-based journalists' understanding of the EU processes and to help them both find and interpret information emanating from the institutions, for the benefit of straightforward, informed media reporting of issues.
