Content Creation Week – eine Woche voller Content-Highlights

Hunderte von Besuchern, dutzende Workshops, eine Hand voll Content-Experten und eine ganze Menge Spaß – das sind nur ein paar Dinge, die wir von der Content Creation Week mitgenommen haben.

Was als kleine Idee im Führungsteam der Blogfabrik anfing, entwickelte sich zu einem Festival für alle Besucher.
