Why should I attend the Intelligent Content Conference?

Marlowe Beckley Manager, Content Strategy SapientNitro

Because it’s going to rock!
Content. It’s everywhere. And getting control of it is arguably the biggest challenge for business these days. We’re creating so much content today — for so many audiences, platforms, channels, and devices — that traditional content production methods no longer suffice. The days of hand-crafting every single piece of content is coming to an end. To create future-ready content, organizations are adopting a new approach. A smarter one. One that leverages the power of technology to assist us in doing content right.

Enter content that is intelligent — content both humans and machines can understand
If you’re in the business of producing content, the Intelligent Content Conference is for you. Each Spring we bring together the world’s best and brightest content experts — folks who work in the trenches planning, analyzing, strategizing, choreographing, engineering, and marketing content — to discuss industry best practices, share lessons learned, and teach hands-on workshops.

 

What will I learn?

Our roster of top-notch presenters will help demystify the methods, standards, tools, and technologies that are needed to deliver the right content, at the right time, to anyone, over any channel, on any device. You won’t just learn about theories at ICC, you’ll leave with practical tools, templates, and real-life examples to help you apply what you’ve learned the day you get back to the office.

 

Who attends the Intelligent Content Conference?

Marketing practitioners passionate about leveraging content as an organizational asset, including communications roles, content strategists, managers and creators, and internal content change agents. Sessions will lean toward larger enterprises and those companies that want to bring structure to their content marketing with process and technology.

"I've attended this conference for years because it helps me think in new ways about the value I can bring my clients. I also meet people here who enrich my life in ways that I could never have anticipated. And (can I say this?) it's a hoot. You can't know why you should go until you've gone." Marcia Riefer Johnston ● President ● Marcia Riefer Johnston, Inc.
