Mash Media has today announced the launch of 2020Publishing- a conference which will take place at International Confex 2019 on 27th February at Olympia London. Confex is taking place alongside The Event Production Show and The PA Show.

The new conference is targeted towards publishers looking to develop new revenue lines and products for their businesses. In a series of presentations from leading experts, attendees will receive practical and in-depth advice on how to develop their business models for financial success.

Leading professionals will share their experience and knowledge on making the most of the challenge’s publishers face and the opportunities and solutions that exist to ensure the future growth of publishing.

Julian Agostini, MD of Mash Media, states that: “2020Publishing is an event we have been looking at for some time.  As publishers ourselves, we don’t feel there is an event in the market that truly delivers this how-to content. We want to develop our business, but we don’t know what it could look like and we certainly don’t know how to get there”. 

"This event will provide practical case-study based education on how publishers can futureproof their business through product development, as well as through new product development. But the most important factor is the how”.

“We see the co-location with International Confex as a strong fit. We already welcome many publishers to the show who come to understand events better and how they can develop this essential element for their business. Now they can learn all about events and their core business – publishing”.

"We’ve had a tremendous response to this new event and are pleased to work with What’s New in Publishing as our media partner, alongside the team at Media Voices and Carolyn Morgan from Special Media.”

The 2020Publishing Conference will consist of seven sessions conducted by industry professionals. Sessions include ‘How to join the reader revolution’ – looking at paid content strategies’; ‘How to make money from marketing services’ – ‘how to develop non-traditional revenue streams’ and ‘how to develop high value data and intelligence products’.  The full programme and speaker information can be viewed at

Tickets are priced at £170 which includes the full day’s programme, a buffet lunch and networking drinks.  The conference is sponsored by Pensord and Denmaur Paper Media
