2013 – Helsinki

Organising CS Forum Helsinki was like opening a gigantic window to the colourful world of content strategy, revealing its many shades and nuances. Working in a market area like Finland, with a population of 5 million people using varying language, we took a broad look at how companies are finding their inner publishers. We summed it up in this short documentary. Take a look! In a few words, hosting CS Forum was a great journey and learning experience for the whole Vapa Media team. We would never give it up.Ida Hakola, Conference Manager, 2013
