Don’t be fooled by the name change – Magfest is back, but with a twist.
The turbulence of the past 18 months has accelerated change in our industry at rapid pace. Publishers have been operating across multiple platforms for years, but Covid-19 has forced us all to engage with digital products and innovations at a much more sophisticated level than we’ve ever experienced before. From podcasts to e-commerce to online events, publishers have pivoted admirably to uncover new revenue streams, yet still underpinned by the magazines that started it all. With that in mind, we’ve changed the name of this annual event to “PPA Scotland Live” to better reflect the wider publishing ecosystem.
This is still the celebration of magazines that you know and love…but with a more finely tuned focused on the business of publishing and all that encompasses it. We hope you’ll join us for the ride.
