O Magazine Announces O You! Event in Atlanta

O You! is O magazine’s major event, where the magazine comes to life with a series of seminars and workshops by the magazine’s most popular contributors, hosted by O Editor-at-Large Gayle King. Publisher Jill Seelig tells FishbowlNY that about 5000 women will be attending this year’s conference on October 15 in Atlanta, Georgia, where the magazine has hosted events before. “We absolutely love it!” she said.

Contributors you can expect to see there include Suze Orman, Dr. Oz, Nate Berkus, Martha Beck, Donna Brazile, Peter Walsh, Bob Green, Adam Glassman, and Val Monroe. The program will also include content from Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“For the first few years of the magazine’s life, we were doing events with Oprah herself,” Seelig said. “Her schedule has obviously become busier, but the contributors to this magazine have become celebrities in their own right. We really saw value in bringing them together and allowing the readers to interact with them. The impetus was really to give our readers more access to these contributors that they’ve come to know and love.”

Oprah’s Magazine Gets Ready To Celebrate Tenth Anniversary

Feb 2010 sub.jpgDespite Hearst‘s shuttering of O At Home in November of 2008, the Oprah Winfrey brand is as strong as ever, evidenced by the pronouncement of O, The Oprah Magazine‘s 10th anniversary weekend plans, kicking off on May 7.

O, in true Willy Wonka fashion, will be putting ten “golden tickets” inside its February issue, with the winners being invited to meet the queen of daytime TV herself during the scheduled “Live Your Best Life” a three-day event in New York. The event, produced for 6,000 attendees, will include seminars from Suze Orman and Martha Beck. Winfrey will also be performing a one-woman show at Radio City Music Hall.

Tickets — for those who don’t get their hands on a golden ticket — go on sale March 15.

Press release after the jump.
