tcworld is hitting the road!

As Europe's largest association for technical communication and information development, tekom strives to bring together professionals from across borders and enable a fruitful dialogue. To realize this goal, the tcworld Roadshow 2013 - a mobile one-day conference - will bring the newest trends and developments to technical writers in six European cities.

Technical communication has grown far beyond the scopes of a mere writing and editing profession. Due to globalization it has become a business asset and a true success factor for many European companies. However, in order to generate the maximum value from technical communication, legal requirements, technical challenges, educational standards as well as the diverse needs of global audiences will have to be met. Thus said, technical communication creates a very challenging, yet profitable business environment.

In order to discuss how technical content can be turned into a major asset for companies, tcworld has organized a mobile one-day conference that offers an exciting program including presentations from local and international experts. During a panel discussion top industry experts will illustrate best practices for creating value from technical content. The conference program will be completed by an interactive session to encourage the exchange of ideas and experiences among the participants about successful team management. The tcworld Roadshow will be held in six European cities within the first two weeks of June. It is the ideal opportunity for all those who are looking for new ideas on how to create value from technical content or who are eager to start a European network of technical communication experts.
