About Confab

Confab is an event for people who care about making content better for their users and organizations. And no, you don’t have to be a content strategist to attend! If you plan, design, build, or manage content, Confab is where you belong.

When is Confab 2021?

May 5–7, 2021.

What is the virtual Confab experience like?

You’ve never attended an online event like this before! The camaraderie you’ll feel with speakers and attendees alike is hard to describe—real-time connections play out over three days of learning and fun.

For an up-close look at how the three days of the virtual Confab experience are structured, check out the Confab 2021 schedule.

The main components of the conference are:

  • A three-day live broadcast featuring keynotes, panel discussions, fireside chats, and various virtual antics
  • Small-group discussions and watch parties throughout the event, moderated by speakers and attendees
  • The exclusive Confab Slack workspace where you’ll engage in ongoing conversations about the program; meet new friends with common interests; and reconnect with old pals
  • The on-demand video library featuring dozens of pre-recorded talks by new voices and experts across many industries and specializations; you’ll also have access to full recordings of the live broadcast after the event—unlimited viewing for 365 days
