Content Marketing Institute Recognized by the City of Cleveland

We’re pleased to announce that on August 17, Cleveland City Council presented the Content Marketing Institute (CMI) with a resolution of recognition for spearheading the content marketing movement in Northeast Ohio, with special acknowledgement for hosting the international conference, Content Marketing World.

The resolution states:

“WHEREAS, Content Marketing has taken hold in the Northeast Ohio area over the past decade and Cleveland is now an incubator for content marketing brands, including Junta42, Content Marketing Institute, Optiem, PR 20/20 and Med City Media, to name a few.”

One of the goals of creating Content Marketing World was to make Cleveland the content marketing hub of the world. Thanks to the support of the City of Cleveland and our many sponsors and partners, we’re on our way to doing just that.

The resolution was presented by Cleveland City Councilman Martin Keane and Jim Kopniske, communications director for Cleveland City Council. Steve Lorenz from Kamm’s Corners Development Corporation helped to lead the efforts behind gaining recognition for CMI and Content Marketing World. The Kamm’s Corners neighborhood is home to CMI headquarters in Cleveland.

“When the ‘Godfather of Content Marketing,’ Joe Pulizzi, throws a party in Cleveland, the world beats a path to our door,” said Steve Lorenz. “Thanks for bringing the brightest marketing minds to our great city for Content Marketing World!”

The inaugural Content Marketing World Conference will kick off Sept. 6-8 at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cleveland. The conference is expected to bring more than 500 marketers to Cleveland for three days of keynote presentations, workshops and first-class networking events.

You can register at Travel information and event schedule are available on the conference website.
