I was fortunate enough to visit New York for the "Annual Cosmopolitan Conference" back in October 2006. Held every two years, the conferences are a giant "meet and greet" for Cosmopolitan Editors from around the world, and an invaluable learning experience for anyone working in the publishing industry. We heard Reed Krakoff (CEO of luxury brand Coach) and a very frail Helen Gurley Brown (Cosmo's founding Editor) speak, were wined and dined on New York's finest rooftops and in Park Avenue Apartments, and even experienced an American Halloween. But I never did make it to the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge. Fifth Avenue? It's your fault.
