If you spend your weekends flipping pages of perfectly designed publications, or your lunch breaks poring over the the latest issues in Foyles, we suggest you snap up a ticket to the third edition of the Modern Magazine conference taking place next week.
Produced by magCulture, the day is a celebration of both digital and print creations, designed as a platform for magazine moguls and those with a growing interest in the industry to come together and share their thoughts and ideas on the future of publishing.
This year’s line-up sees an impressive group of editors, designers, and creative directors from both independent publications and worldwide powerhouses taking part, including editor-in-chief of The Gourmand, David Lane, Charlotte Heal the design director of Kinfolk and creative director of Stylist and Shortlist, Matt Phare. 2015’s keynote comes courtesy of Wired US editor-in-chief Scott Dadich whose appointment back in 2012 saw a total revamp the publication, an increased audience of 42 percent and an influx of awards for both content and design. Other highlights include talks from editor-in-chief of Flaneur, Grashina Gabelmann, Monocle editor Andrew Tuck and the chance to handle early editions of seminal publications.
The day will set you back £150 (£90 for students) but tickets include lunch, drinks reception and a goody bag laden with treats and magazines.
The Modern Magazine takes place on Thursday October 29 at Central Saint Martins, King’s Cross. Tickets are available here.
