MAGAZINE DAY: The Future of Content Creation

Magazine Day has been around longer than any event in Ad Fed history. This year, however, we’re giving Mag Day some botox.

Magazine Day will be an evening affair hosting a panel of print and digital media discussing the future of content creation and reader engagement.

Questions will focus on ying-and-yang of content creation. What have we learned from the past and how are we applying it to the future as we enter a digital era? What does this mean for traditional content generation, publishing and real-time news? How has the shift evolved paid/owned/earned media?

Join the nation’s elite publishers and content creators for drinks and hors d’oeuvres Thursday, June 4th 2015 from 5:00-8:00pm. Panel at 6:30pm

See below for parking info.

Panelists Include:
