Special opportunity

Published: Monday 30 November -0001

imageA gathering of almost 45,000 people in one city for 10 days is bound to prompt publishers to come out with special issues.

The most successful operation was COP 15 Post, a daily special by the English language Copenhagen Post. Copies were available everywhere, from metro stations to markets, apart from venues. It had a mix of stories, covering highlights of official negotiation and events outside, along with columns by visiting activists and experts. It was free, obviously cashing in on advertisements. It served as a good guide for eating out, shopping and cultural events in Copenhagen for visiting delegates.

The left parties also published specials, distributed by young volunteers predicting the death of capitalism.
