Mags BC Remix is a magazine-focused networking event that brings publishing and media professionals to share their expertise and passion in this fast-evolving industry. The June 14, 2012 event will discuss the topic of Multi-Platform Publishing.
High quality print magazines are still a key part of the publishing business, but it is not the only one. The Internet has made every publisher a possible television producer, radio broadcaster, blogger and website developer. Users now also demand that publishers provide them with the content they want, in the format they want, at anytime of day. Our different panelists will discuss how they use multi-platform publishing to increase revenue and to reach a greater number of readers.
