The STC Summit is a must-attend event for technical communication professionals from around the world. With 60 years of success under its belt, some of the most recognized names in technical communication give presentations, participate in panel discussions, and provide insight into where the profession is going.
The Summit is made up of two major parts:
The Education. Organized in tracks, these sessions begin Monday morning and continue until midday on Wednesday. Sessions are offered in a variety of formats, including traditional presentations, workshops, progressions, and lightning talks.
The Expo Hall. This opens on Sunday evening and features numerous companies, all prepared to unveil and demonstrate new and exciting products, services, and technology to the world of technical communication.
The Summit will come to a close on Wednesday with a closing keynote to wrap up three busy and exciting days of learning and networking.
The STC Technical Communication Summit and Expo Hall has long been considered the premier event to unveil and demonstrate new and exciting products, services, and technology to the world of technical communication. Technical communicators see STC’s annual conference as the one “must-attend” conference of the year where they can learn new job skills, network with like-minded individuals, and receive the tools they need to be successful in their careers. With hundreds of attendees, these highly skilled professionals gain training and career development from technical sessions, networking opportunities, and interaction with exhibitors and sponsors.
Why exhibit or sponsor?
Expand your visibility and customer base. Exhibiting and face-to-face connections are much more effective than cold-calling, and offer more opportunities to meet the potential customers.
Get in touch with decision-makers and top influencers. Summit attendees come to the conference from more than a dozen countries from around the world and include technical writers, usability specialists, documentation managers, web designers, illustrators, managers, educators, translators, and other communicators. This means that you have a greater chance of getting in front of the people that matter most at a company.
Get inspired by like-minded individuals. Since the Summit Expo Hall is considered the premier event to unveil and demonstrate new and exciting products, services, and technology, you’re sure to be among the very best in the business. You may even walk away inspired yourself!

Perpetual Innovation: How the World’s Most Innovative Teams Surface Great Ideas to Deliver Exponential Outcomes
We’ve all seen the examples of LEGO’s Hollywood movie, GE Ecomagination and Dos Equis ‘Most Interesting Man in the World.’ They’re held up time and again as beacons of killer creative. Enough already. It’s easy if you have sexy products, big budgets and household brand names. But we create technical articles, user guides and complex documentation. Those innovative examples don’t have anything to do with us.
Or do they?
It turns out, we all suffer from something called Brand Detachment Disorder (B.D.D.). We can’t connect the dots with brands unrelated to ours, and our blindness kills creative ideas before we even start. But guess what — the most brilliant minds understand creativity is something you consistently nurture, rather than leave to chance.
Welcome to Perpetual Innovation.
In this captivating presentation, author and marketing executive Carla Johnson shows you how combating B.D.D., recognizing inspiration everywhere and iterating ideas breeds unstoppable creativity and game-changing innovation for you and your company. You’ll walk away ready to jump-start collaboration to deliver exponential outcomes for your brand.
Avoiding Surprise: Anticipating Potential Disruptors on the Horizon
We didn’t see that coming! Too often, we are surprised by change that we should have seen coming. In this interactive session, we’ll explore a dozen potential disruptors that may influence technical communication in the future. Participants will have a chance to rank their possible impacts and identify potential responses. They will come away from the session more prepared to face and influence their personal and organizational futures.
