"What is the most relevant topic for you in the field of content marketing right now?" This question greeted visitors of Europe's largest content marketing event at our booth. Journalists from the FOCUS Online editorial team, SEO specialists, content strategists and experts from the fields of social media and performance advertising were available to answer questions from guests.
Content-Talk at the coffee bar
The CMCX, Europe's largest trade fair for content marketing, took place on March 12 and 13, 2019. At the BurdaForward booth visitors had the opportunity to talk to experts and ask questions about content. A barista invited visitors to choose the coffee mug that matched their topic of interest - and so the content talk began! According to the results, the topics that are currently driving the industry the most are social media, SEO and content strategy. During the two days of the fair in Munich, the team was able to explicitly address the needs and questions of the visitors.
