Welcome to LavaCon UX, a Virtual Content Strategy Conference with a New Orleans Flair!
25–31 October 2020

LavaCon started in Hawaii (hence our name) to help senior content professionals stay ahead of rapidly changing authoring and publishing technologies.

However, LavaCon is more than just a conference. It’s a gathering place where industry professionals share best practices and lessons learned, network with peers, and build professional relationships that will last for years to come.

This year, we’re going virtual. Not only do we have a fantastic line-up industry leaders in our program, we’re also keeping all the networking, social interactions, music, food, and parades just like we’re in New Orleans!
