    Why Magpie? Because I like observing these sleek birds with a tapering tail. And like Magpies, I live with the burden of being a 'chatter', even though I believe that I am rather shy, reserved and unobtrusive :).

    Event: Indian Magazine Congress 2006

    The Association of Indian Magazines is holding its second annual Indian Magazine Congress at New Delhi on October 30-31. The conference, on the theme "Winning with Magazines," hopes to address issues like: Can print publications survive and thrive in the face of Internet competition? Will print publications be able to transition to a digital environment by creating their own Internet presences? It also hopes to focus on some issues like acquisitions and joint ventures by foreign media companies. "Winning with Magazines" is intended to explain the intricacies of the Indian market to foreign businessmen trying to get in.

    Key speakers and panelists include publishers who are already in the market as well as policy makers, media owners, buyers and planners, and marketers familiar with the environment. You can read the conference program and register for the event here

    Surprisingly, the website does not list out any registeration costs for 'Indian delegates'. Indians interested in attending the event have to email to an id mentioned on the sign up page to get more info.
