Last week we had the pleasure of not only attending Saskatoon’s MoSo conference and music festival, but partnering with the event to host our own “secret party” under the banner of our award-winning arts and music blog.
The conference, which focused on the topics of mobile and social, brought together over 400 attendees and was a resounding success. The music festival featured over 50 performers in a multitude of venues. Big thanks to the organizers who worked incredibly hard to bring an event of this magnitude to the prairies!
