Not even blistering temperatures could keep the media world away from attending the Global Editors Network Summit in Vienna this year. For us though, returning to GEN felt like returning home.
Since winning 2016’s Startup for News, we’ve been extremely lucky to have a supportive partner in GEN. So it was our pleasure and honour to not only exhibit but also have our CEO Jeff MC’ing one of the days as well (check him out doing his thing below ).
This year was particularly special as it saw us exclusively reveal our latest baby to the global crowd - the Trint Player! We’re very proud of this new addition to the family; a revolutionary feature that allows users to make recorded content searchable. It means that all of the keynotes and panels are searchable and shareable within just a few hours. In fact... ta-dah!
Thanks to GEN once again for giving us this exclusive space to showcase our Player - the feedback has been overwhelming. We had lots of fun in Vienna, from handing out our energy-boosting swag (check out those #TopBananas) to being able to see some amazing talks on what the future holds for media and journalism from the likes of Amy Webb, Ben Smith, Peter Bale to name just a few.
