Edi­tor’s Let­ter

Cosmopolitan (India) - - EDITOR'S LETTER - Nandini Bhalla, Edi­tor nandini.bhalla@in­to­day.com

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),
