Confab is an event for people who design, create, and manage content. From UX to storytelling, accessibility to structure, Confab brings together those who are committed to making content useful and usable. The four-day event welcomes professionals from all disciplines who plan, design, build, and manage content.
Long before “content” was a buzzword, Confab participants were digging deep into all things content strategy. Speakers always tackle what’s new and what works. Attendees ask smart questions and share their own experiences. All year long, Confab sparks ongoing conversations that push the industry forward.
Each year, the conference draws crowds from around the world—in seven years the summit met 10,000+ attendees from more than 30 countries and nearly every state in the US. Representing Fortune 500 brands, retailers, nonprofits, government institutions, and agencies of every size, here’s who attends:
- Content strategists
- UX designers
- Content marketers
- Writers and editors
- Technical communicators
- Content managers
“For me, Confab is more like Content Therapy Camp, where I learn so much from the talks and workshops, but also from conversations with my peers. They help me put things in perspective.” Saskia V., The Dutchess
“I came to the conference with an open mind and a blank notebook. I left with so many ideas, and well over 20 back-to-back pages of written notes, tips, and suggestions of how I can best do my work.” Holly A., NSCC
“I am impressed and look forward to seeing you again next year, hopefully with more of my department in tow to experience it all for themselves.” Scott M., Interlochen Center for the Arts
