It’s time to don the ballgowns and bow ties and head into London for an evening of glitz, glamour and publishing excellence! Kevin Costello, the PPA Chairman & CEO of Haymarket Media Group described the event as ‘One of the nights in the calendar you wouldn’t want to miss’, and with some excellent shortlisted individuals and companies, it promises to be a fantastic event.

6 – Digiday Publishing Summit
19 – 21 September
Key Biscayne, Florida
The focus at this year’s Digiday Publishing Summit will be the “Platform Power Play” – exploring the successes, failures and lessons of distributing on platforms. This event seems to be genuinely concerned with the latest hot topics for publishers, and is a great excuse for a trip to Miami!

7- Monetising Media
21 – 23 September
Millennium Gloucester, London
This conference from Media Briefing aims to answer that golden question: how can publishers make money? If it’s up to the standard of their Digital Media Strategies conference, then this is well worth attending if you’re a senior exec in magazines, news or B2B publishing.
