Register for ONA20

Our energetic community gathers for four full days of exciting learning opportunities, networking meetups and other fun, inspiring events. Your conference badge includes access to most educational events and networking opportunities, including the Thursday night reception.

Please note that some networking opportunities and workshops may require a free RSVP closer to the event.

Additionally, the Online Journalism Awards Ceremony and Banquet, honoring the year’s best digital journalism from around the world, requires a separate registration fee. Conference participants receive a 50 percent discount on a ticket purchase.

ONA members save more than $300 off registration prices and student members save $25. A 1-year membership is $75, so many people join to take advantage of this discount.

Hotel information is available on our travel page.

Conference registration will open in April 2020
