The registration process for MagNet–the annual conference of the Canadian magazine industry–has just opened, and while the early-bird deadline is still a long way off (May 4), there is no time like the present to begin perusing the list of panels, sessions and speakers.

Among the 112 panellists lined up to participate in the 60+ sessions and events are National Magazine Award winners including Matthew Blackett (publisher and creative director at Spacing), David Hayes (freelance journalist and NMAF board member), Domenic Macri (art director of Report on Business), Matthew McKinnon (online editor of The Walrus), Craig Silverman (freelance writer and editorial director of OpenFile), Lisa Whittington-Hill (NMAF board member and publisher of This), and the most recent recipient of the Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement D.B. Scott (president of Impresa Communications, Ltd).

NMAF President Arjun Basu, Editorial Director of Spafax Canada, and NMAF Vice-President Douglas Thompson, Editor of Canadian Home Workshop, will also be hosting sessions.

MagNet takes place June 5-8 at the Courtyard Marriott in Toronto, part of Magazines Week in Canada that also includes the 35th anniversary National Magazine Awards gala, June 7 at The Carlu.
