The LavaCon Content Strategy Conference: Creating Unified Content Experiences | October 27-30, 2019 | Portland, OR

The LavaCon Content Strategy Conference

LavaCon started in Hawaii (hence our name) to help senior content professionals stay ahead of rapidly changing authoring and publishing technologies.

Our 17th annual conference focuses on how to unify content from silos across the enterprise, leverage new immersive technologies, and create stellar content experiences.

However, LavaCon is more than just a conference. It’s an interactive experience where content superheroes (and emerging superheroes) gather to share their best practices and lessons learned, network with peers, and build professional relationships that will last for years to come.

LavaCon Content Strategy Conference: The Buzz

``My favorite part about LavaCon is the connections and the networking that I do when I'm here.``- Matt Sullivan, Tech Comm Tools
``My biggest takeaway from LavaCon has been not something that I learned in a classroom, but something that I learned in the lunchroom, and that is the networking aspect of this. That's the best part of these conferences. It's the best part of LavaCon. The people that you meet, the takeaways that you get from them.``- MaryKay Grueneberg, SAP
``Great location, awesome conference, awesome food. If nothing else, if you ever wanted to treat yourself, you should go to LavaCon.``- Christopher Ward, WebWorks
``Great conference! I learned some new things, met some nice people, had a chance to really discuss some of the burning issues that I encounter professionally, and had fun to boot! Well done LavaCon team!``- Sarah Watson, Dialog Semiconductor
``LavaCon is the successful result of fantastic planning, organization, energy, and creativity, as well as the excellent work of the staff at the Portland Hilton, a beautiful venue. The people, sessions, and activities, including the tours around Portland and the Columbia River Gorge, all contributed to a most memorable experience.``- Carol Moyer, Lockheed Martin
I stopped and thanked you personally at the conference, but I must say it again. Thank you! I’ve been raving about how wonderful last week was to anyone and everyone! I’m pretty sure LavaCon changed the trajectory of my life, in a good way! Thanks much!- B.J., Manager, Technical Publications
The LavaCon conference provided me with an opportunity to mix and mingle with a variety of people and perspectives. This year’s gathering seemed to reach new heights in this regard. I found myself engaged in detailed conversations on several occasions, and these conversations helped me to put some final touches to my own rubric and framework for discussing content, content strategy, and content solutions. So I need to declare this year’s event to be an unqualified success.``- Joe Gollner, Gnostyx Research
