There’s a distinctly autumnal feeling in the air, and as the leaves and weather undergo their transformation, so too will the world of digital publishing.
Here are our top event picks to keep you in the know:
1 – Monetising Media Europe 2016
21st – 23rd September 2016
Millenium Gloucester, London
This event brings together 300 senior publishing execs to discuss the biggest question of 2016: how on earth are publishers to make money from digital? The conference will take a look at ‘practical challenges surrounding revenue creation’ as well as offering a critical look at investment in mobile, advertising models and social audiences.
It’s followed by a Media Tour on 23rd September which takes a peek into the workings of leading media and publishing houses.
Tickets range from £999 to £1,999 from the Monetising Media website.
2 – World Publishing Expo 2016
10th – 12th October 2016
Described as ‘the only worldwide event dedicated to news media production’, this expo has introduced two new conferences alongside it: Digital Media World and Print World 2016, as well as guided tours. We don’t think print and digital being separated into two conferences is the hottest idea, but the speakers and topics being discussed are right at the forefront of industry issues.
Tickets are from EUR 49 – EUR 149 from the World Publishing Expo website.
3 – Digital Publishing Innovation Summit
19th – 23rd October 2016
Stamford Bridge, London
With the future of digital publishing more cloudy than ever before, this event should be high on any digital publisher or marketers to-do list.
The conference brings together established big players in publishing and digital content production alongside startups that are rapidly changing the face of the industry, for a series of talks, interactive workshops and case studies all geared towards this years theme of ‘Engage, Grow and Establish Your Audience with Content’.

4 – Digiday Publishing Summit Europe
26th – 28th October 2016
Digiday are one of the leading brands to break digital publishing news, and have got a great subject line-up for their European Summit. The focus will be on platforms – they’ve already proved their worth in terms of audience reach, but how this can be made profitable is still something of a mystery.
The Summit will bring publishers together to discuss this and other issues ‘from ad blocking, scaling for a global audience and leveraging data for sales’.
Visit the Digiday website for more information about tickets and speakers.
5 – The AOP Digital Publishing Convention
7th – 8th November 2016
The Congress Centre, London
This ‘Inside Out’ convention from the AOP looks to address ‘the challenges of product development, monetisation models, advertiser transformation, data complexity, audience engagement and hyper-competition’ over the space of two days.
There are also a selection of ‘Inside Out Academy’ sessions for ‘ambitious young professionals’ running parallel to the event.
Visit the AOP website to learn more about getting involved.
6 – Future of Magazine Media Conference / Digital Magazine Awards
29th November 2016
Proud Camden, London
We loved the Digital Magazine Summit last year – check out our review of the day. This is one we would recommend again: with an ‘unconference’ feel to it, the real movers and shakers in the industry gather to debate cutting-edge issues in converted stables (!) and look to the solutions in the year ahead.
The conference will focus on the latest trends in Design & Content, Advertising, Marketing, Technology and Video, and the Digital Magazine Awards will follow in the evening.
