[UPDATED] Manitoba magazine conference postponed; "Mini-Maggies" reception to be held
[This post has been updated] The annual Manitoba Magazine Publisher's Reaching Readers conference and the associated 7th annual Maggie Awards due to be held May 28 have been postponed. A note to members from executive director Linda Hazelwood says that attendance did not support the expense of going ahead.
[Update: In lieu of the awards, a Mini-Maggies, will be held to recognize this year’s winners. The Mini-Maggies will take place at 6:30 pm on May 28, at the Governor’s Boardroom at Bailey’s Restaurant in Winnipeg. There will be a cash bar, and the MMPA is requesting all attendees RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome.]"There seems to be too many other things happening next week (which of course we were not aware of when we picked our date), which caused a time conflict. We will individually contact all those who booked, to discuss refunds."The Maggie winners will still be announced on May 28, but by email, web, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets.
"The events are not cancelled, just postponed. The conference sessions will happen as single events, while the Maggies Awards will be moved to be a part of the golf tournament wind-up dinner on August 6 at Bel Acres Golf Club. We will arrange transport from the city for those who do not wish to drive."
