The CS Forum has just launched its website for its London event, 5-7 September 2011. It’s aimed at content strategists, writers, web designers, developers, entrepreneurs and basically anyone with an interest in what goes into websites.
Speakers confirmed to date include web-content expert Gerry McGovern and usability/IA/UX guru Karen McGrane.
The first CS Forum ran in 2010 in Paris and was the “first public conference solely dedicated to content strategy”. The organisers aim to make it an annual European event for learning, sharing and networking.
It sounds like a brilliant event and I was planning to go. But the truth is, at the moment I feel that the price is a bit steep and inflexible (especially for freelancers) at 549 GBP for a two-day conference (no one-day options) without any workshops!
I know it’s really important to network and develop new skills, so I’ll have to think about it… Watch this space.
