The Premier Technical Communication
and Content Strategy Conference

April 14-17, 2019 | Hard Rock Hotel

MadWorld Is Your Best Learning and Professional Development Opportunity of the Year

Transform the way you think and work.

Spread out over four full days of learning, the MadWorld technical communication and content strategy conference is your chance to learn from the experts, network with your peers, and take home best practices.

The conference features 40 main conference sessions, a new pre-conference workshop, eight advanced workshops, more than 20 expert speakers, a technical support lounge, and hosted evening networking events to ensure you not only learn from the best, but also get to have fun while doing it.

MadWorld is the pinnacle of conferences.
