Mash Media launches 2020Publishing Conference
Mash Media, specialist publisher and event organiser for the events industries, has today announced the launch of 2020Publishing – a new conference aimed at publishers looking to develop new revenue lines and products for their business
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
Taking place at Olympia London, alongside event industry trade shows International Confex, Event Production Show and The PA Show, 2020Publishing will bring together leading professionals to share their experience and knowledge on making the most of the challenges publishers face and the opportunities that exist to ensure the future growth of publishing on 27th February 2019, Olympia London.
Julian Agostini, MD of Mash Media, said: “2020Publishing is an event we have been looking at for some time. As publishers ourselves, we don’t feel there is an event in the market that truly delivers this how-to content. We want to develop our business, but we don’t know what it could look like and we certainly don’t know how to get there. This event will provide practical case-study based education on how publishers can futureproof their business through product development as well as through new product development. But the most important factor is the how.“
“We see the co-location with International Confex as a strong fit.” continued Agostini “We already welcome many publishers to the show who come to understand events better and how they can develop this essential element for their business. Now they can learn all about events and their core business – publishing. We’ve had a tremendous response to this new event and are pleased to work with What’s New in Publishing as our media partner, alongside the team at Media Voices and Carolyn Morgan from Speciall Media.”
The conference will contain seven sessions delivered by industry professionals who have first hand knowledge of their delivery. Sessions include ‘How to join the reader revolution’ – looking at paid content strategies; ‘How to make money from marketing services’ – ‘how to develop non-traditional revenue streams’ and ‘how to develop high value data and intelligence products’. The full programme and speakers can be viewed at www.2020publishing.co.uk.
Tickets are priced at £170 which includes the full day’s programme, a buffet lunch and networking drinks. The conference is sponsored by Pensord and Denmaur Paper Media.
