Compass 2017

18 November 2017, Lviv

About Event

A new travel event came to town. Best practices of Ukrainian Lviv Media Forum and Polish media project Outriders, with the support of Lviv Travel Club, were combined to form a new travel conference – Compass 2017.

Experienced travellers from Ukraine and Poland arrived in Lviv to share their incredible, funny and interesting adventures during the travels. Speakers also talked about transforming personal travels into media stories that impress the whole world.

What are the main lifehacks of professional travelers? Is there a difference between a traveller and a travelling journalist? What should one do to draw the attention of the audience to his/her travel stories (like blogs, video stories, and reportages)?

All these questions found answers on 18th of November at Compass 2017.
