Tickets include the first-ever 2012 COPA Yearbook: The Who’s Who of Digital Publishing in Canada, along with hors d'oeuvres throughout the evening.
As well, it's a chance for guests to share their digital success stories: COPA sponsor Agility CMS will be on hand recording thoughts from attendees about who they think should win in the category of best online-only article or series (which Agility is presenting), as well as asking attendees about their most successful online initiative this year.
The video will be compiled into a 3-5 minute finished product posted on Youtube, linked from Agility's Unbound Media blog
