Episode 171: Magazine Launches with Conan Tobias, Taddle Creek and Poet Chris Chambers

With in-person magazine launches impossible during COVID-19 restrictions, magazines have had to innovate in order to bring their readers and contributors together, and so virtual launches have become more common.

In this episode of AudioMag, Kiley Pole, Magazines Canada’s Manager of Member Services and Benefits, speaks with Conan Tobias, Publisher of Taddle Creek, about planning and executing virtual launches and Chris Chambers, poet and Magazines Canada’s Retail Accounts Manager, about his experiences reading at different live and virtual events.

Hear what it’s like to plan a virtual magazine launch during a pandemic, how it’s different from in-person events and how magazines can integrate learnings from virtual launches into in-person events for the future.
