Top Content Marketing Conferences You Won’t Want to Miss in 2023

Charles Samuel

It’s a new year, but it doesn’t feel a whole lot different yet. Mostly because “business casual” still means it’s still OK to wear pajama bottoms to meetings—just as long as your Zoom peers don’t notice.

The global pandemic has changed the way we work. It’s also changed the way we think about industry events. Major brands and organizations have shifted gears from in-person events to hybrid experiences—like virtual fireside chats in real time alongside live fireside chats. In some industry surveys, over 70% of event creators had to make the all-out switch from face-to-face to digital. Marketers remain in this same holding pattern.

For content marketers, the new year brings new opportunities to refine their craft. It may just end up looking a lot different than we’re used to. (The keynote speakers may be wearing pajamas.) In fact, it’s already very different for some tried-and-true events.

Below are the nine best content marketing conferences to check out this year. The list is organized by when they’ll show up on your calendars, but we’re opening with a bang: Content Marketing World has been a staple for content marketers for years. If your calendar or budget allows for only one major content marketing industry event in 2023, this might be the best choice.

We’ll keep updating this page when conference details change, so keep your eyes peeled (and bookmarks ready) for more up-to-date information.

Content Marketing World 2023

The Rolls-Royce of content marketing conferences, this annual event is hosted by the Content Marketing Institute. They’re the folks who made content marketing a thing.

This feels especially important in 202e as audiences are doing more with digital content than ever before. For brands to elevate their enterprise-level content, learning from trailblazers and their innovations could be the difference between standing out and standing still.

They focus on the strategic components of content marketing—from research and analysis all the way to accessibility and workflows. This is for marketers serious about building the right kind of content marketing engine for both today during the pandemic and in a post-COVID world. In the past, they’ve been creative with their events (like setting up separate lounges for introverts and extroverts), and they’re bound to find a way to bring people together this year for attendees weary from the pandemic.

MozCon 2023

For content marketers who want to zero in on and learn SEO, this is a serious contender for bumping that foosball tournament off your calendar in July. The pandemic has forced marketers to learn new tactics (and unlearn a few outdated ones) to continue to stand out during a crisis. Quite frankly, more people are online now. And they’re using search engines more often. For marketers who want to sharpen skills, explore new and upcoming tactics, and learn about how the nature of search is evolving, this event’s for you.
