Simon Leslie

Sue Holt

Rebecca Darwin

February 10, 2020

Change is the Only Constant.

The Magazine Innovation Center is pleased to announce Quad as a Leadership sponsor of this year’s ACT 10 Experience. We also welcome the MPA: The Association of Magazine Media’s IMAG to Oxford, Miss. and to the School of Journalism and New Media at the University of Mississippi, where the two events will come together to celebrate all things magazine and magazine media. The Quad partnership will underwrite the cost of attendee registrations, making this year’s conference free to attend.  We thank them, and our Diamond (Advantage CS, Democrat Printing & Lithography, Hearst Magazines, Meredith Corporation), Platinum (issuu), Gold (Active Interest Media, Bonnier USA, LSC Communications), and Silver (Advantage Circulation Specialist, Bauer Media USA, Delta Magazine) sponsors for their continued support of our industry and their investment in the future industry leaders, our students.

The theme for the ACT 10 Experience is: Change is the Only Constant. And today, with magazines and magazine media, never has that statement been truer. ACT 10 Experience will explore all of the ins and outs, possibilities and impossibilities that await everyone who is a part of this amazing industry or who simply love it from a different perspective, perhaps.

Thanks to our partners and sponsors, The ACT 10 Experience will bring together under one roof, magazine and magazine media notables from around the world. From CEOs to publishers, editors in chief, to printers and paper companies, digital to social, rest assured, this is no ordinary conference. And scattered among these elite and renowned people are the students who we perpetuate with this experience, giving them each and every one an opportunity to get to know the best of the best in the industry, from journalism to marketing. ACT 10 Experience provides something no other conference has: the ability for a student with fresh ideas and innovative creativity to sit down and have a conversation with the CEO of a major magazine or magazine media company.

Quad will also sponsor the gala event for the IMAG Recognition Award – IMAG will recognize an individual for their expertise and service to the magazine media industry, and also the Mr. Magazine™ Launch of the Year for 2019 and the Student-Created Magazine Launch as well.

ACT 10 Experience Welcomes MPA’s IMAG 2020… Change Is The Only Constant… Save The Date: April 21 to 23, 2020

December 9, 2019

The Magazine Innovation Center at The University of Mississippi’s School of Journalism and New Media announces the theme for its 10th anniversary ACT (Amplify, Clarify, and Testify) Experience: Change Is The Only Constant.  The ACT 10 Experience is also proud to announce that it is welcoming the MPA: The Association of Magazine Media’s IMAG 2020 community to the magazine media experience in Oxford, Mississippi.  The dates for the event are set for April 21 to 23, 2020.

The Magazine Innovation Center was founded in 2009.  The Center is the birthplace of the annual ACT Experience, which in 2020, will be in its 10th year. Each year MIC strives to provide industry leaders and aspiring media members a Think-and-Do Experience, brimming with ideas, inspiration and a little fun along the way. It’s also a time when students can meet and network with industry leaders and professionals in the media community to further their own portfolios and knowledge. The magazine students are paired with industry leaders to shadow and learn from their expertise and experience. It’s a three-day world filled with possibilities for everyone; from potential careers for students to new friendships and business conversations between leaders.

Nowhere else can future industry leaders (the students) exchange ideas and inspiration with current industry leaders (CEOs, presidents, publishers, editors and other magazine and magazine media professionals); it is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

The ACT Experience brings together leaders in the magazine industry including MPA’s IMAG community to share best practices, resources and learning unique to enthusiast brands. Peer-to-peer networking, coupled with intelligence on issues central to enthusiast brands and the wider industry, make this gathering a “must attend” for indie leaders and their vendor partners.

In 2020, the ACT Experience will continue the discussions of the important issues facing the magazine and magazine media industry in this ever-changing world of media and technology. And of course, the value and benefit it will provide to anyone else interested in publishing and content will be incomparable.

The ACT 10 Experience will focus on the following six topics under its 10th anniversary theme:

 Change Is The Only Constant

  1. Transformation of magazines from pure ink on paper entities to multi- magazine media platforms: print, digital, video, audio, events, and social media.
  2. The future of social and marketing roles of magazines and magazine media
  3. The future of paper and printing industries
  4. The future of circulation and distribution
  5. The future of advertising and marketing
  6. The future of magazine launches

We will cover each of these important topics: distribution and circulation, advertising and marketing, creation and curation, transforming beyond print into digital, video, audio, and events, and last but not least, new magazine launch stories, along with other issues and information.

In addition to that, we’ll celebrate two awards during the conference: the IMAG award for excellence in Independent Magazine Media for 2019, and also the Magazine Innovation Center’s Launch of the Year for 2019.

Stay tuned for more details…
