about the

conference

 FOMM

FOMM is about sharing the latest ideas and innovations within magazine media and making sure you’re armed with the latest information to make the right decisions for your future. 

If you want to get a handle on where the magazine media industry is heading, what areas you should be concentrating on and what media and technology will be leading the way, then FOMM is where you’ll find out.

Since we launched the Digital Magazine Awards seven years ago the magazine sector has evolved and innovated at a spectacular rate. This has often meant decision-makers working in magazine media, having to make major business calls, without the necessary info at their fingertips. We’ve decided to challenge this with a conference focusing on developing trends and emerging patterns, bringing in sector experts to share their in-depth knowledge of the way the industry is evolving. 

So what have the next five years got in stall? Well, probably more of the same disruption. So rather than worrying about what the future holds, come to FOMM and arm yourself with all the latest trends and info. We look forward to meeting and chatting with you on the 29th November!
