Two days of keynotes, thought leadership, case studies and data-driven product sessions combined with networking with your peers from around the world.

ConTech is an event for content people – from publishers to content and information managers – who want to understand how data-driven content will impact their organisations, operations and the content they create, deliver and consume.

  • If you have a business perspective, the event is about understanding the opportunity and how to take the first steps towards a more data-driven business model and strategy.
  • If you are a content practitioner, the event is about how to migrate towards data-driven publishing – whether that is in creating content, managing content or distributing content.
  • If you’re an information scientist, the event is about introducing new data science tools and techniques into your work and enhancing the services you provide to your users.

ConTech 2019 is also for the data science community who have begun to specialise in the content area.
