Talks in Torni

Talks in Torni
Originally uploaded by FransBadger.

Torni (Tower) is a famous old high-rising hotel in Helsinki; today we had the advisory board meeting there for MindTrek Association, which runs probably the largest and oldest new media event in Scandinavia and one of the leading ones also in European scale. There is the constant challenge of what an event that is focused on the emerging, and the new, while also trying to capture attentions of professionals and general audience at the same time should focus this year. There is again some fresh energy in the air, so lets hope for an interesting, more tightly packaged MindTrek: most things will happen this time during only two days in Tampere, so book October 3rd and 4th in your calendars!
