Kick off the week with this informal gathering at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. It’s a terrific way to get energized for a week of keynotes, parties, and networking.

A must-see when visiting Cleveland is the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame located at 1100 E 9th St, Cleveland, OH 44114. Fortunately for you, as a CMWorld attendee, you don’t have to worry about securing museum tickets. Why? Because you’re invited to a private reception Wednesday, Sept. 29, 7pm-10pm.

Charitable Giving

Help Us Conquer Food Insecurity

This year, we are asking attendees to help us feed families in Northeast Ohio, many of whom have faced extraordinary hardship during the pandemic. We are collecting food for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. We’d be grateful if you could pack one of the Top 10 Items needed in your suitcase or make a monetary donation on site and we’ll do the food purchasing for you. For our virtual attendees, you can also help by making a monetary donation here.

To make this an even more rewarding project, for every speaker evaluation submitted (through the event app or virtual platform) we will donate $1 directly from the event. You will help us by building a stronger program through input from the speaker surveys while also making a greater impact for local families in need.

Thank you for your donations and speaker survey submissions!

Topic Tables

Some of the most powerful conversations at conferences take place in an intimate setting. Get ready to head to the table with our topic discussions. Pull up a chair and speak with like-minded content marketers. There are several areas of interest to choose from! You can chat and share ideas over lunch or during networking times.

Speaker AMAs (Ask Me Anything) – A virtual attendee exclusive!

Attending CMWorld online doesn’t mean you can’t have conversations with our keynote speakers. We’re giving you unprecedented access to content trailblazers. You’ll have plenty of chances to get your questions answered and hear responses to the ones you didn’t think to ask.

CMWorld Running Club

A question we often get is “Where’s a good spot to run at Content Marketing World?” In fact, we heard it so much that CMI’s Creative Director started the CMWorld Running Club. Don’t miss your chance to log miles with fellow attendees. The group gets together Wednesday and Thursday at 6 a.m. Eastern. The orange starting line is outside the Convention Center’s Lakeside Avenue entrance located at 300 Lakeside Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44113.

The Creative Show

You’ve watched them on YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Now, JK Kalinowski and Buddy Scalera are taking their show on the road. Catch The Creative Show at Content Marketing World. The guys will take you behind-the-scenes, as well as test your knowledge with content trivia. We hear their shenanigans will include a giveaway or two.

Birds of a Feather Discussions – A virtual attendee exclusive!

Join fellow virtual attendees for interactive, online conversations during our Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions. Your shared interests will bring you together with like-minded marketers in a relaxed, informal setting. No need to register for a BoF ahead of time. Just prepare yourself to talk about the hottest content topics.

#CMWorld Chat TweetUp

We love seeing the lasting connections made during our weekly Twitter chats. But something special happens when our community gets to see each other face-to-face, in real life. If you’re a regular participant in the weekly Twitter chats, join us for our annual #CMWorld TweetUp. We’ll gather at Noble Beast Brewing Co., 1470 Lakeside Avenue, just a short walk from the convention center.

Thursday Evening

For those attending CMWorld in person, Thursday evening is open for you to explore Cleveland on your own or meet up for dinner with industry friends. For a list of restaurants in downtown Cleveland, check out this map.

Coffee and Conversation

Espresso yourself on the last day of the conference content is to fuel up with caffeine. That’s why we’re hosting a Coffee and Conversation meetup on Friday, October 1. We’ll gather in front of the Convention Center’s Starbucks Coffee at 7 a.m. Eastern.

CMWorld Bookstore 

The shelves are stocked with resources for professional and personal development. Plan to pick up a book or two in the Expo Hall thanks to our friends at Visible Voice Books or digitally on Amazon.
