soap! 2018 | 6th edition

the best content conference

May 23-25, 2018 | Kraków, Poland

soap! is an exceptional conference dedicated to product-related content.

At soap! we believe that content is not merely text. That’s why we discuss different content types such as graphics, videos, manuals, or user interfaces, different phases of content lifecycle including its creation, management, transformation, and localization as well as different roles involved in the process: authors, information architects, project managers, graphic designers, and other. Our community – the wonderful soapers – is made of hungry for knowledge, tech-aware professionals who share experiences and skills during workshops, talks, and coffee breaks, make meaningful connections and friends, have fun, and much more. soap! is an extraordinary, international community. If you are a content professional, you will definitely like it. Come join us!

theme

We want product-related content that is simple to author, deliver, and manage. We also want product-related content that is easy to follow for users. How can we get there? Can innovation be the key? Can it help us gain simplicity? Or does it equal complexity? How can we balance both? Tell us your content story of simplicity and innovation. Videos, graphics, documentation sets, workflows, project management, UX, and more – we want to hear them all! Call for speakers and workshops closes on Jan. 30. Submit your talk or workshop now!

days 2 & 3

soap! conference

The conference are two days packed with talks, networking breaks, and surprises. Get started with a cup of coffee, take a seat, and absorb the wisdom of the fellow soapers. You don’t need to worry about taking notes – all talks are recorded and made available on our youtube channel after the conference.

venue?

Located at the bank of the Vistula River right opposite the Wawel Royal Castle, Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology is a truly exceptional place. It combines the functions of a traditional museum (with its exhibitions and collections) with those of an active cultural center. It’s a fusion of modern technology and traditions of the Far East. During both conference days our guests will have free access to all exhibitions at Manggha.

who can attend?

Anyone! Although the conference is dedicated to content professionals, so people who work with product documentation, e-learning and training, visuals, as well as UI and UX, we are very proud to see more and more people joining soap! from related areas, for example, software development or testing. No matter what you do, if you’re interested in product-related content, soap! is just what you are looking for!

after soap!

After each day of the conference, we have an after party for you. Usually, we try to keep Thursday (May 24) relatively calm because we still have one day full of talks ahead of us. But on Friday (May 25) we like to start with great beer at T.E.A. Time BrewPub and then explore the nightlife of Krakow. All soapers are more than welcome to join! We’ll announce the place and time when we know them!
