At Confab, content strategy is a big tent.

Confab attendees know content is more than “just the words”! Our program is designed to help connect the dots between the different fields of practice that focus on all kinds of digital content—for websites, apps, marketing, services, support, chatbots, and anywhere else people need content to get a job done.

Each year, we carefully curate the Confab program from hundreds of talk proposals to ensure you’re getting the best ideas, insights, how-tos, and inspiration. Talks cover a range of interrelated topics, including:
