When it was again time to update the popular manual, published for the first time already in 1996, convention director Ella Näsi had an epiphany. “I wanted the manual to be more flexible and easier to update. I also wanted it to be interactive”, she says. This resulted in the publication of not one, but two interrelated blogs: one in Finnish and one in English.
The Finnish blog Kongressiviisas.fi is directed more at Finnish congress organisers. It gives tips and guidance on what to take into consideration when organising a congress in Tampere. For those who are visiting Tampere as delegates can get a lot of information out of the English version Congresswise.com. This blog dwells more on general aspects of Tampere and Finland.
The two main writers of the blog are convention director Ella Näsi and marketing manager Pia Helminen. “We do have a space for visiting writers, so anyone who is interested to contribute is welcome to contact us!” exclaims the duo.
