MagNet 2020 is going virtual, and registration is open!

There’s no doubt that MagNet will be a little different this year, isn’t everything? But what hasn’t changed is the top-notch programming, stellar speakers and valuable peer-to-peer networking you’ve come to expect from MagNet, online!

MagNet: Canada’s Magazine Conference and the Arts & Literary Magazines Summit are happening November 26–27, 2020. Each day starts at 11 am (ET) with a Marquee keynote session, followed by your choice of two breakout sessions from three different program streams. Hear from industry experts on new revenue opportunities, engaging your audience, making that advertising sale and more!

Thursday, November 26 features the Marquee presentation from John Wilpers, Senior Director, Innovation Media Consulting, speaking on the most important innovations in media. And on Friday, November 27 Jael Richardson, Artistic Director, Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD), takes the Marquee stage, speaking on taking critical, transformative action on diversity and inclusion.

There will be daily networking opportunities, live Q&As, and a virtual MagNet Square to interact with exhibitors. All MagNet sessions will be recorded, and they’ll be available afterwards so you can revisit all the highlights. Here are the 30+ speakers you can hear from, and here is the complete virtual event program.

The new pricing for MagNet 2020 is $55 for one day or $95 for both days for Magazines Canada members, and $75 for one day or $125 for both days as a non-member.


You can choose a full MagNet pass (Thursday and Friday with both Marquee keynote presentations, your choice of breakout sessions and plenty of networking opportunities) or a day pass for Thursday or Friday (a Marquee presentation, breakout sessions and networking opportunities).

The full MagNet pass is the best value for your money, with ample networking potential throughout the two action-packed days. Register now to tailor your experience so you get the most from international innovators, domestic experts, dynamic panellists, exhibitors, funders, suppliers, advertisers, colleagues and more!
