Five Key Themes from the American Magazine Media 360° Conference
FIPP’s president and CEO Chris Llewellyn on themes from MPA’s recent conference in New York: Content, brands, video, social media and, of course, print. Mr. Llewellyn writes: I am pleased to report that the mood this year was very optimistic, certainly the most positive since the dark depths of 2009. There were several factors at play which gave me this feeling but undoubtedly the most powerful was seeing the industry’s big elephants, Hearst, Meredith, Condé Nast, et al launching magazines, developing with confidence their digital activity and in seeing a newly independent Time Inc. acting as a market leader should, embracing a new entrepreneurial spirit not seen for some time."
