CMS Expo offers 3+ days of learning, discovery and innovation for its participants. Hosted by the independent CMS Association since 2008, this annual conference brings together businesspeople and technicians, marketers and academics, creatives and administrators, to learn - collaboratively, like in "real life," all under one roof - what's new, relevant and actionable in the fast-changing content managment community.
Uniquely User-Driven. CMS Expo's environment is uniquely user-driven, it's a conference first, focused on discovery, learning and sharing of relevant information. CMS Expo is about solving problems and delivering the unvarnished truth about what works and what falls short when it comes to today's leading content management systems, content strategies and content marketing practices, from people who are in the trenches every day. CMS Expo is the place to meet fellow users from organizations and corporations big and small, and learn from them, and from the teams of CMS Pros helping them succeed.
The Right Tool (And The Right Strategy) For The Job. We all know there is no one perfect tool to do everything. Every situation is different, and every CMS will require customization, in order to create the ideal working environment for each particular case. CMS Expo focuses on helping attendees better understand how to strategize, customize and implement their plans, from start to finish.
Where Open Source Meets Proprietary. CMS Expo's roots grow deep in both the Open Source movement and Proprietary solutions too. CMS Expo welcomes BOTH Proprietary and Open Source (and hybrids!), to inform and empower end users to decide for themselves which solutions (or combination thereof) best fits their needs.
Enterprise Isn't All About Size. CMS Expo serves the vast "middle tier" in business, with much of the focus on Web Content Management Systems (WCMS). From the "self-serve" CMSs to ECMSs, CMS Expo has you covered.
From Beginner to Expert. With a variety of CMSs represented, plus their representative ecosystems, CMS Expo serves all levels of expertise.
A Collaborative Conference. Since day one, CMS Expo has always served the whole Content Team, with relevant programming for Admins, Businesspeople, Creatives and Developers. In the "real world," we all know there is constant cross-over and collaboration among those who touch content in the "real world," so our approach is to offer a conference where collaborative teams can learn and discover together too, for three days a year.
