Cultural and literary magazines may be pleased to know that a Cultural Magazines Summit will be held October 16, immediately after the 40th FIPP World Congress that Magazines Canada is hosting, An announcement by Mags Canada says that, with the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts, a full day of workshops, networking and discussions is planned. A posting from Magazines Canada explains
This event will take place immediately after the 40th FIPP World Congress in Toronto (October 13–15), so sharing lessons and experiences from the Congress and discussing how to take advantage of international opportunities will be a significant component. World Congress attendance is not required to attend the Cultural Magazines Summit, but the Summit will be designed to enhance the Congress experience for those who do go to both.
With MagNet week cancelled for 2015 [to return, June 2016], the October Cultural Magazines Summit is your opportunity to meet with your peers in a comfortable setting that is all about YOU, YOUR magazines and YOUR challenges. There will be no better place this year to network with cultural magazine colleagues from across Canada.
The 2015 Cultural Magazine Summit will take place at the Courtyard Toronto Downtown (the same hotel that hosts MagNet) on Friday, October 16, the day after the FIPP World Congress. Save the date! #CulturalMags15
