CONFERENCE DAY 1

All day, we’re surrounded by content. From billboards to signage in the dentist’s office, content is everywhere. And while it’s critically important to our experiences, it’s often overlooked as a commodity. But that’s about to change. Instead of simply measuring the cost to develop content, we should instead treat it as an asset that enhances the experience we’re providing to our customers – thereby increasing its value. And when we can monetize the value of that content, while decreasing the cost to produce and manage it, we can maximize it properly.

Listen as Acrolinx CEO Volker Smid talks through the importance of maximizing the content asset in your organization, how to set and measure the right KPIs, and how Acrolinx can help.

You spend so much time and money creating content. But every piece of content that’s not aligned to your brand voice takes your company further from its target audiences. Meanwhile, the manual process of aligning your content with your brand voice is painstakingly slow and intense.

Join panelists from leading brands to learn where the journey to creating a single brand voice begins. What stakeholders should build the foundation? What steps make up the process? And once you’ve identified your singular voice, how do you apply it and scale it for best results?

Content chaos is a real drag. Just ask any enterprise organization that struggles with long and looping editorial cycles, inconsistent content, wasted content, or high translation costs.

Join our panel of experts as they discuss steps and strategies for streamlining content creation cycles, breaking down silos and bottlenecks, reducing the number of mechanical tasks, and making sure the right resources are working on the right projects. Understand the positive business outcomes that Acrolinx has delivered for these organizations, while streamlining their content operations.

Getting a KCS program running is a lot of work. Keeping it running takes persistence. A successful program requires constant attention to communicate the vision, train folks on new skill sets, and coordinate across teams. Organizational structures and change blockers present ongoing challenges to enable progress.

In this session, our panelists take a look at the tipping point that propels organizations to change, while also offering a roadmap for KCS rollout and adoption.

CONFERENCE DAY 2

Content is risky business. Think of all the content pieces your organization creates, and how tricky it is to guarantee that it’s all compliant, clear, and accurate. And the struggle only intensifies as new legal terms emerge or there are changes to existing language that your content needs to reflect? How can you be sure you’re not misusing regulated or even protocol-related terminology? How do you avoid risk and unclear language in your product documentation or help content?

Our panel of experts will walk through these challenges and more, while offering important guidance on how you can protect your business from content risk.

We need more content than ever before to sell our products and services. But it’s becoming harder and harder to deliver enough. There are long production delays, quality issues, and content that’s wrong and never gets used. Plus, top talent is often doing the work of junior resources, which ends up costing you a lot more money.

Take a listen as this group of content pros discuss strategies for optimizing their content teams, so they’re able to deliver more content, faster, with the budget they’ve got.
