This is what a few of our 2023 attendees had to say:-

Terrific event with powerful and super-informative sessions. The networking was excellent. I love how the industry is so supportive and this is very evident at the Renewd Summit.

I have attended publishing industry conferences on and off for nine years. This is by far the best in terms of content, networking, and venue.

“Excellent presentations and networking opportunities. Lots of new ideas that I can’t wait to implement.”

The depth of topics and expertise, coupled with actionable take aways provided me pages and pages of ideas to take back and share with my team.

I love this opportunity to learn from smart, successful people who share my chosen line of work. How fun it is to talk shop, learn, recharge and be inspired at every turn.

The Renewd Summit is the richest, smartest, coolest and most welcoming experience of the year for content and event leaders.

The ecosystem [Renewd has] created is amazing.   It’s an inclusive collaborative & supportive group willing to lend a hand.  I felt right at home from the second it kicked off.
