min's Most Intriguing, People to Watch, Hottest Launches Awards Breakfast Decmber 10 in NYC

Most Intriguing People + People to Watch + The Hottest Launches

Awards Breakfast
December 10 | Marriott Marquis, Astor Ballroom, 7th Floor | NYC

Join us on December 10 in NYC for min's Most Intriguing People + Hottest Launches awards breakfast. The editors of min, in association with Samir "Mr. Magazine" Husni, will present awards for the Most Intriguing People in Media, the Hottest Launches of the Year, and the up-and-coming "People To Watch."

Each year since 2003, min has recognized those who made a difference. It may not be a slam-dunk success, but the people we call Intriguing are getting the attention from their peers and the marketplace by their innovation, strategy and the occasional guts. Our profiles of the 21 tell why they do what they do.

Plus, we celebrate the year’s hottest launches with Dr. Samir Husni. “Mr. Magazine’s” association with min dates back to 1986. Let’s see if any of his 15 matches the success of Wired (1993) and The Week (2001), which he quickly embraced when others didn't  And we salute the People to Watch—those -under-30-somethings who have the potential to be leaders in our field. These are, in the words of Sports Illustrated, magazines’ “Faces in the Crowd” that make the business so dynamic. All of these “intriguings” are honored during a breakfast event at New York’s Marriott Marquis on December 10, 2012.
