Investing in Magazines: How (and Why) To Dive Head First Into Publishing
If “print is dead” as they say, why are people still starting and buying magazines? In this lively session, two new entries into the magazine business share the stories of how they came to own their titles and why magazines are still a great investment. Hear advice and anecdotes from energetic newcomers Graeme Roustan, who just acquired The Hockey News, and former British GQ journalist and stand-up comic James Mullinger, publisher of the newly launched The Maritime Edit.

Making Inclusion Truly Meaningful
It’s nice to go to conferences and talk about how great and important diversity is. But what happens when we get back to our offices and try to get to work? It takes real effort to move beyond lip service and make structural change that incorporates diverse voices in your editorial decisions. On this panel, writers and editors will discuss how to create an inclusive editorial process and why it’s well worth the effort.

Throw Things @Sree
This is a fast-paced, fun session filled with tech tips and tricks and a chance to ask social media expert Sree Sreenivsan anything (well, almost anything!). You will get a checklist to take home and also get a chance to watch Sree give live feedback to brave volunteers about their social media platforms. Hands-on, practical and actionable, this session will give you a hand in getting out of the weeds of social media.


In 2016, as a response to the downturn in print advertising revenue, the team at St. Joseph Media’s Fashion magazine began work on a massive undertaking that ultimately led to a complete transformation of their brand, and in the process turned their advertising revenue model on its head. They did this by repositioning Fashion as a luxury brand and expanding its presence in the United States. St. Joseph Media’s Jacqueline Loch presents the results in this podcast.
