When we go to conferences, we want one thing: everything. So that’s what we wanted to give the attendees of Content Jam ’17. We tried to create an experience where you’d get actionable insights, cool tips, inspiring and worldview-changing keynotes, and a chance to rub elbows with marketers, business owners, and anyone with an interest in content marketing.

Content Jam 2017 was a two-day affair featuring 15 of the top-rated speakers in the field. With a mix of insight into technology, analytics, storytelling, and the psychology of marketing, there was truly something for everyone. We let our attendees find breakout sessions that help their professionally (and personally), enjoy talks in their field, and possibly learn something outside their comfort zone.

Highlights of the event included:

  • 15 top-rated speakers
  • Four 3-hour sessions on Day 1
  • 8 breakout sessions on Day 2
  • An SEO Masterclass
  • Inspiring and unpredictable opening and closing keynotes
  • Multiple networking opportunities, including a gourmet catered lunch from one of Chicago’s top chefs
  • Beautiful views of the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, and the famous skyline
  • An inclusive afterparty for some late-night networking

In short, it was more than a conference: it was an even that you’ll remember for not just helping you professionally, but for being a true personal experience. We’re glad we saw you there. and hope we can reconnect this year.

And if you couldn’t make it, check out some of the talks filled with practical advice that you missed.

We think you’ll find something you like, and we hope to see you this year!
