Profound and accelerating change is coming to the content world. New ways of thinking about content—how we create, manage, translate, and deliver it—are required to take advantage of the fast-approaching artificial intelligence revolution. The traditional methods we have used to produce content for the past few decades are no longer sufficient. Content is a business asset that must be prepared—and delivered—with business goals, customer needs, and the requirements of technology in mind.

Enter Information Development World: Creating Machine-Ready Content

Information Development World (IDW) is the conference for technical, marketing, and product information managers—the folks responsible for managing the people, processes, and technologies involved in creating exceptional customer experiences with content. IDW takes place semi-annually at the Quadrus Conference Center in Menlo Park, California, the heart of Silicon Valley venture-capital land.

There’s nothing like IDW. Not even close.

IDW is an intimate, three-day, laser-focused, guided journey designed to prepare you for the coming artificial intelligence revolution. We bring together an impressive roster of knowledgeable content professionals—innovators, artists, scientists, engineers, academics, and business leaders—in one big room and take you step-by-step through the topics that matter.

Shorter sessions. Laser-focused. No nonsense. 
No amateurs. No meaningless blabber.

Your guided journey begins with a focus on the business activities, processes, competencies, and tools required to take full advantage of chatbots, voice interfaces, and intelligent agents. Each day has a specific focus and is divided into bite-sized chunks, making it easy for you to have aha moments. Daily mini-workshops help you identify next steps you’ll need to prepare your content for the future.
