Wrapping up Confab, unwrapping CS Forum: a special event, 7 June 2011

In Announcements on May 26, 2011 at 6:34 pm

Calling all content strategists, user experience designers, information architects, web writers and editors, web developers and technologists, marketers, communications pros, product managers, publishers and entrepreneurs: this is an event you won’t want to miss.

In a series of lightning-style talks of 5 minutes each (with plenty of pauses for drinks), eight speakers (including two international guests) will fill you in on what they learned at Confab, the groundbreaking U.S. content strategy conference, earlier this month—followed by a sneak peek of what’s to come this September at CS Forum 11 in London.

Hosted in the stunning Mermaid Centre, join us to learn, talk, socialise, discuss, network, pow-wow, postulate and surmise. And did we mention it’s free?

Date: Tuesday 7 June, 6-9 pm
Venue: The Mermaid Centre, Puddle Dock, London, EC4V 3DB
