"Publishing+ will tackle a number of these fascinating issues that are shaping our industry, along with revealing industry research into the digital consumption of magazine content.

"With the industry's brightest stars speaking, we're confident this year's PPA Conference will help shine a light on where we're headed and how, as an industry, we can make the most of the change we see happening."
