About the events

Confab is a series of content strategy conferences for people who care about making content better, in their organizations and for their clients. And no, you don’t have to be a content strategist to attend! We welcome professionals from all disciplines who plan, design, build, and manage content.

In 2017, our events include …

  • Confab Central: our largest and most diverse conference
  • Confab Intensive: our all-workshop conference for focused, hands-on learning
  • Confab Higher Ed: our event dedicated to the unique challenges and opportunities of content strategy in higher education

Registration cost and payment

How much does Confab cost?

Most tickets cost between $799 and $1,699, depending on the event. Early registration makes a difference—not only in terms of cost, but also because seats often sell out in advance. But even our fanciest, last-minute prices—plus extra workshops!—have never gone higher than $2,099.

What does my registration fee include?

Registering for a Confab event gets you access to one of the industry’s leading content strategy conferences, plus:

  • Daily breakfast and lunch, as well as our legendary morning and afternoon snack spreads
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the conference area, plus dedicated quiet rooms to catch up on work
  • A relaxed, welcoming conference party with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a free drink ticket
  • Exclusive discounted room rates at the conference hotel
  • Post-conference archives of all available slides (and some video recordings)

Can my team register for Confab as a group?

Why, yes! Confab is a great place to get your team collaborating and talking about content strategy in a whole new way. If your employer registers three or more people together at the same time, you’ll automatically receive a 10% discount. If you need to add folks to a group registration, just email us at to receive your discount.

What discounts are available?

Besides the 10% group discount, you’ll hear about temporary sales and special discounts via our mailing list. We work hard to keep our ticket prices low, including early-bird prices that give you up to $300 off. And if you work at a nonprofit, you never have to pay a higher fee than the early-bird price—just get in touch for a special code.

Conference policies

Can I cancel or transfer my registration if I can’t attend?

Yes, up until three weeks before the event. Just sign into your registration, click “Transfer my registration,” and follow the instructions there. (Please note that we’re unable to split the registration fee between two people, so you’ll need to work that part out.)

You can also cancel your registration if there’s no one to send in your place. If you cancel within 48 hours of registering, you’ll receive a full refund. After the 48-hour grace period (up until three weeks before the event), you’ll receive a refund minus a $250 cancellation fee. If you need to cancel, just let us know at

If it’s less than three weeks before the event, we’re sorry to say we can’t cancel or transfer your registration or issue a refund.

Do you have a code of conduct?

Yes, we do. People tell us that Confab is one of the friendliest, most welcoming conferences they’ve ever attended, and our code of conduct helps us keep it that way.
