For less than $400 you can attend and be part of this annual experience. ACT 8 Experience will be a chance for you to inspire industry leaders and future industry leaders to propel the world of magazines into a profitable future. I guarantee you will walk away with better connections and feel inspired about the magazine world outside your bubble.
This year we are welcoming several new faces including Linda Thomas Brooks, President & CEO of MPA, James Hewes, President and CEO of FIPP, the global media network based in the Untied KIngdom, Erik van Erp, Founder and Editor of Print Media News in The Netherlands, Bonnie Kintzer, President & CEO – Trusted Media Brands, and Newell Turner, Editorial Director of the Hearst Design Group.
You’ll have direct access to more than 10 editors and editorial directors, 9 presidents and CEO’s and a slew of marketers, designers and sales consultants. See the list of confirmed speakers so far at the end of this blog. A total of 33 magazine and magazine media makers sharing their knowledge and wisdom in the world of magazine and magazine media making.
Consider this a small vacation. Sit back and listen to prolific speakers tell their stories – their trials and tribulations we all rallied against to become the best writers, designers marketers and business people we could be.
Immerse yourself in the foothills of Mississippi by exploring the small but mighty town of Oxford. Take a step into southern past by strolling the streets in Clarksdale, Mississippi where the Delta Blues Museum and Morgan Freeman’s famous Ground Zero restaurant sit tucked into a humble downtown. Allow your creative juices to flow as you network with industry leaders.
I personally guarantee you will leave Oxford not only with a leg up on the industry but with a belly full of Mississippi fried catfish and an ear full of soothing, Delta blues. It’s a refreshing experience to slow down to the Mississippi pace of life. Enjoy a memorable ACT experience of learning, doing, seeing and living the Mississippi way.
