San Jose, Calif. — October 07, 2016 — Acrolinx today announced open registration for Content Connections 2016, its free, one-day virtual conference for content professionals. The conference gives attendees access to many of the industry’s most regarded thought leaders as well as content practitioners at cutting-edge brands.

The virtual conference will be held on November 1 in North America and on November 3 in Europe. There will also be a German-language version of the conference on November 2.

“We’re reaching an inflection point in content,” says Andrew Bredenkamp, CEO, Founder, and Chairman of Acrolinx. “As the industry begins to mature, companies are making big plays in content. That means that getting your content right is more important than ever. That’s why we’re thrilled to be able to serve up a real all-star lineup of experts to help bring some real practical, how-to advice to our customers.”

“Content marketing is one of the fastest evolving disciplines in our profession,” explains Scott Brinker, the CTO of ion interactive, editor of chiefmartec.com, and one of this year’s speakers. “It’s great to have an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in the field, helping marketers stay on top of them, with the convenience of a virtual conference.”

The other speakers in this year’s lineup include Jeff Bullas, Joe Pulizzi, Ann Handley, Robert Rose, Doug Kessler, Andrew Davis, and Rahel Anne Bailie, among others. They will be presenting on a wide range of topics, including:

  • Building a massive audience over time
  • Turning audiences into customers
  • Content and experiences
  • Making content strategies work in the enterprise
  • Keeping pace with marketing technology

Now in its second year, Content Connections is one of the largest virtual conferences for content professionals in the world.

“Content Connections is a great event because it not only packs a real punch in terms of ideas, takeaways, and insight, it’s also so convenient,” continues Bredenkamp. “Part of the beauty of a virtual conference is that you can join in from anywhere and come and go as much as you’d like. We understand that content professionals are time poor and this format really helps us deliver value in a way that works with their busy schedules.”
