XpoNorth Writing & Publishing in association with PPA Scotland is very pleased to announce the launch of Magazine Connector: Highlands and Islands – a new and essential business networking and insight event for magazine publishers in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Taking place for the first time at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness on 9th November 2016, Magazine Connector will feature three major speakers from Scotland’s thriving professional publishing industry – Nikki Simpson, Business Manager at PPA Scotland; John Innes of Think Publishing and Eileen McGinley, a Magazine Editor-In-Chief at DC Thomson.

Aimed at the Highlands and Island’s magazine publishing sector – from new start-up consumer titles to well-established B2B publications – the programme for the afternoon has three main themes: Magazines – Scotland’s most diverse industry; Commercial Creativity – balancing creativity and business, and Why you have never heard of the UK’s biggest magazines.

Magazine Connector is a great new networking opportunity for anyone publishing or working (employed / freelance) in the magazine sector in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The speaker programme will be followed by an informal networking and drinks reception.

Travel bursaries subject to application are available from XpoNorth Writing & Publishing delivered by Emergents Writers, for attendees traveling to the event from the Scottish Islands.

The event is free but booking is essential. Find out more and book via Eventbrite
