For 10+ years and counting, the world’s best content marketers have gathered annually at Content Marketing World to share what’s next for the industry. Creativity and innovation take center stage as leaders share next-gen strategy, shed light on leading-edge formats and creative executions, up their skills via lively workshops, and create lasting connections with the industry’s top professionals.

The event is run by the Content Marketing Institute—the landscape’s premier leader in global content marketing education and training. 

After 2020’s CMWorld conference went virtual-only in the wake of the pandemic, marketers are anxious to reunite with their peers face to face. The conference will resume its traditional in-person format for 2021—with safety at the forefront, and a variety of compelling digital elements. The 4-day event will take place in Cleveland, Ohio between September 28-October 1, 2021. 


This year’s lineup boasts over 100 sessions, workshops, and industry panels led by brand marketers and content experts from around the globe.

Professionals/organizations set to present include Ann Handley of Marketing Profs, Marriott, Audible, LinkedIn, Cleveland Clinic, Adobe, American Express, the Motley Fool, our very own Industry Dive, and more. 

Matt McCue, VP Content, studioID, Industry Dive, will lead a session that aims to take marketers on a trip to the future. His talk, “Content Marketing Predictions for 2022 (And How to Navigate Them)” will revolve around forward-looking findings from our pulse survey of over 100,000 storytelling professionals.
