What do you get when you put 100-plus passionate Cosmo Editors and Publishers in one room (in stunning Spain)? A fabulous Cosmic conference, that’s what!
I’ve just returned from Cosmopolitan’s global conference in Madrid and, boy, was it a powerhouse of inspiration! It was fascinating listening to other Editors talk about all the exciting things they’re doing in their countries, including fabulous new editorial sections, events, and digital innovations. Through the three days of conferences, presentations, and special talks, two things were clear— Cosmo is one of the few magazines that’s all about the reader (you!) and it remains the largest selling magazine in the world... and is only going to get bigger!
Of course, it wasn’t just work we e were upto (hey, we’re Cosmo!) There was plenty of Fun, Fearless s partying that happened, too, including a fashion flea market, flamenco dancers, actors reliving Madrid’s history, and a truly luxurious gala dinner at the majestic Casino de Madrid.
As I write this, my head is swimming with ideas and the many (many!) things we’d like to do to make your bible even better. Through the months, you’ll see these ideas come to life on the pages of Cosmo, and I kinda have a feeling you’ll be pleased with the results!
Muchos besos (that’s many kisses),
