Mann Publications
Mann Publications
Media Sponsor

Almost two decades ago, Jeff Mann, president and executive editor of Mann Publications, had already built and maintained a successful apparel business when he saw a void in the market for coverage of the real people behind the scenes in the Garment District. Fashion Mannuscript, which started as a four-page newsletter, evolved into a monthly magazine distributed throughout the country, with extensive photo coverage of top industry events, topical columns by experts in the community, and profiles of the people and companies that make the industry what it is.

With the success of Fashion Mannuscript came the idea of expansion. Mr. Mann decided he would tackle the real estate market when he launched Mann Report in the spring of 1998. Over the years, the success of both these magazines has created room for the inclusion of our residential and building management titles, Mann Report Residential and Mann Report Management, respectively.

We at Mann Publications strive to bring our audience together in print, digitally, and face-to-face and celebrate the fashion and real estate industries.
