If you’re in London today or tomorrow then head down to the World Magazine Congress or FIPP London 09 as it’s snazily being called this year.
If you can afford the piss-takingly expensive ticket (why do these things always exclude the people that actually make the magazines but just can’t afford a second mortgage?) there will be a whole host of speakers to er, hear speak…
Felix Dennis; my boss and overall British media legend.
Paul Kurzeja; ex Art Editor of MacUser now Creative Director of Redwood Publishing.
George J. Green; Chariman of Hearst Magazines (may have some insight into their e-ink product?)
Will Whitehorn; President of Virgin Galactic (UK)
Kevin Madden; Publisher of Dennis Publishing’s iGizmo, iMotor and Monkey eZines
As well as panels and talks there will be a whole host of “social events” or “massive piss-ups claimed on expenses” as they are also known. Plus a lot of exhibitors…Also go check out the stand by eDition they’ll have some cool shit on display…
