We here at Vidyard enjoy a good conference as much as the next marketer—we love hearing from leaders in our field, connecting with peers and prospects, and of course, coming home with lots of free swag.

But the conferences we get most excited about are the ones that include a focus on our favourite medium—video.

Here is our list of upcoming, can’t-miss conferences for marketing and sales teams keen to expand their video know-how.

CONEX
August 20 – 22, 2018 – Toronto

CONEX is focused on building better content experiences at every stage of the buying journey. This year’s line up of video experts includes Pixar animator Matthew Luhn, Convince & Convert President Jay Baer, and YouTuber/author/video-marketer extraordinaire Amy Landino. And if that wasn’t enough video expertise for you, just check out their personalized video invite!

Sessions we’re most excited about:

Video Marketing World
August 29 – 31, 2018 – Dallas

An intimate conference of only 500 attendees, Video Marketing World features 30+ sessions on our favorite subject—video strategy. The event is organized like a multi-part workshop, complete with a video strategy workbook that every attendee receives. You’ll leave with the tools and knowledge to design your own video marketing strategy and put it into action.

Sessions we’re most excited about:

INBOUND
September 4 – 7, 2018 – Boston

A celebration of “the human, helpful side of business,” INBOUND is one of tech’s fastest-growing conventions. They’ve also been a longtime advocate of video. In fact, at one year’s event, HubSpot CEO Brian Halligan told the crowd: “Stop looking for that blogger and start looking for that videographer. 50% of your content mixture shouldn’t be text. It should be video.” We couldn’t agree more!

Sessions we’re most excited about:

Content Marketing World
September 4 – 7, 2018 – Cleveland

Content Marketing World is the biggest content event around. With thousands of savvy content marketers collecting in one space, attendees are sure to make great network connections and learn lots from their peers. Of course, there are plenty of sessions dedicated to helping attendees develop and perfect their video strategy—just check out some of the ones we’ve highlighted below! (And did we mention that the closing keynote is from Tina Fey?)

Sessions we’re most excited about:

Dreamforce
September 25 – 28, 2018 –  San Francisco

At this point, full Dreamforce conference passes are entirely sold out, but if you were quick enough to snag one, you’re going to be in for an incredible 4-day tech extravaganza. With the size and scope of the event, there’s definitely something for everyone—including plenty of insight on how to optimize your use of video.
