Depending on your role, both events might be a great fit for you! That said, there are a few key differences between the two events. ContentTECH Summit (August, San Diego) focuses on the effective use of technology, and how that can help content marketing efforts by making content more visible, giving customers better experiences. Attendees include CMOs, CTOs, enterprise marketing leaders, and anyone working at the convergence of marketing and technology. At Content Marketing World (October, Cleveland), we cover every aspect of content marketing including content creation, visual storytelling, branded content, content distribution, demand gen and more (20+ more topics, to be exact!). Attendees include brand and agency content marketing practitioners in any function.
