MagFest is a new and exciting event for all those interested in the Irish magazine media business. It’s a unique conference and festival experience to celebrate all-things-magazine, an event where the world of Irish magazine media comes together to explore, advance, and celebrate what we have done, what we are doing, and, most importantly, what we do next.
MagFest is a very special celebration of Irish magazine publishing with memorable keynote speakers and vibrant discussions; an unparalleled opportunity to hear from and meet the people who really make magazine media so special.
We start with the magfest lunch at 1pm; the magfest Business Sessions are at 2pm; and we finish with a magfest Cocktail Session from 5pm onwards.
