2018 Alberta Magazines Conference & Awards Gala

About

Each spring the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association hosts two days of sessions, panel discussions and keynote presentations by industry leaders and innovators. In its 23rd year, the conference has become an industry institution and an incomparable opportunity for professional growth – both for publishing hopefuls and old hands.

The largest event of its kind in Western Canada, the AMC continues to deliver big ideas, deep insights and endless possibilities in all aspects of magazine publishing (digital media, editorial, circulation, management, ad sales, design and production) in addition to network opportunities with colleagues and industry partners.
