We invite you to join us along with 100 podcasters and the podcast-curious from all over North America, as we descend on Edmonton this May.
You will get a chance to connect with podcasters, businesses, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and content creators sharing their voice with the world. And we would LOVE to have you join the party!
Who is PodSummit for?
This is a grassroots effort. It’s built for people like you and me, who have something to share with the world.
You will meet fellow content creators, podcasters, and the podcast-curious. We tend to attract a spectrum of people: from experts and businesses interested in creating a podcast to reality TV aficionados, foodies and sport junkies.
Most importantly, you will meet new friends and make new connections.
What can I expect?
We are planning a day packed with learning and connection-making. There will be amazing giveaways of gear and software, and we’ll fuel you with local coffee!
If you have a podcast, you will learn how to make it sound amazing, grow your audience, and create content your listeners will love.
If you don’t have a podcast, we’ll show you how to start one, and welcome you to our community.
