About Media Subscriptions Week

INMA's Media Subscriptions Week is a three-pronged exploration of the art and science behind acquiring and retaining digital subscribers: a summit, a study tour, and workshops. Media Subscriptions Week is part of INMA's Readers First Initiative. Our aim in 2020 is to develop a growth playbook for media subscriptions through brainstorming and showcasing new ideas, toolkits, and road maps.

About the Summit

Thursday and Friday, February 27-28

Etc. Venue

360 Madison ave., 5th Floor

After two wildly popular Media Subscriptions Summits in London and Stockholm in 2018-2019, INMA brings Summit 3.0 to New York on Thursday and Friday, February 27-28. This year, the two-day Summit for 200+ people will look at best practices in acquisition and retention for global leaders, dynamic paywalls (segmentation), soft vs. hard paywalls, the pricing behind bundling and unbundling, customer data platforms, subscriptions vs. memberships, flow optimisation from registration to purchase, and best practices in onboarding.

About the Study Tour

Departure Point

Lotte New York Palace

This smaller group of study tour participants will visit 6+ companies over two days in a hands-on deeper briefing into the practicalities behind media subscriptions. Nothing makes a subject come to life more than visiting the offices of innovators and peers. This tour for 30+ executives will be Tuesday and Wednesday, February 25-26, and it requires a separate registration.
