Audiences of the Future

Audiences of the Future: How Can We Attract the Next Generation of Magazine Lovers?



In a Magfest exclusive, we bring together some of the visionaries who have successfully captured the imaginations of young readers to discover what we can learn from their approaches. We’ll discuss the innovative ways they connect with their young audiences, and how they’ve reacted to the challenges and opportunities that come from digital and social media advances.

Our panel includes: Siobhan Galvin, Commercial Director of Egmont; Gareth Whelan, DC Thomson’s Editor-in-Chief of Boys’ Magazines & Comics; Rossie Stone, Founder of Dekko Comics, and Cathy Olmedillas, Founder of Anorak. Our chair is Cameron Clarke, Deputy Editor of The Drum.
