It doesn't get any better for content marketers. They present a balanced, insightful discussion of current trends and ask all the right questions. Their guest list is a "Who's Who" of content professionals. Outstanding.

Emma Pearce (Head of Event Content, Global Portfolio at SaaStock) joins the Content Experience Show to discuss organizing content for events.

Curating Content for Events

Regardless of what industry, hobby, or community you belong to, attending conferences and events with like-minded peers can be an incredibly rewarding and fun occasion. If it’s your job to pull together content for events, however, they can also be incredibly stressful occasions.
Someone who has a lot of experience managing content for events is Emma Pearce, Head of Event Content for SaaStock. Her biggest piece of advice to anyone else with this position is to remember that you are not responsible for being a creator—you’re the curator!
The weight of being an expert in the various subjects and fields represented at your event does not lie on your shoulders. By keeping this in mind, you can avoid unnecessary stress and focus your energy on pulling together the best speakers and the best content possible for your next event.

In This Episode

  • Why event content is uniquely different from content marketing.
  • Why being the head of content for events is not the same as being a content creator.
  • How to balance known experts with up-and-comers when putting together content for events.
  • How to get more out of the content once the event is over.
