Hear from the editorial elite at the Modern Magazine conference 2015

By Stephanie Hartman

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.
