About ConvergeSouth

ConvergeSouth started in 2004 as a grassroots-organized conference about the ‘web’ – blogging, web design, web development, e-commerce, etc. when they were hardly any conferences in the Southeast available to professionals in these emerging fields.

Through the years, we have stayed ahead of the curve and presented on topics involving social media analytics and social media law, content marketing, mobile, podcasting, website design and anything that is ‘On the Verge’ of the next thing around the corner. Our speakers specialize in all things tech, design, and web, and they’re ready to let you in on all the tips and tricks! Read our full story here.

MARCUS SHERIDAN

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

You know him from his sales/marketing/and personal development blog—The Sales Lion. His company exemplifies inbound and content marketing excellence and has been featured in multiple industry publications, including the New York Times where he was referred to as a “web marketing guru.” We are thrilled to have him here with us for Converge South ’16, to share his insight and experience. You don’t want to miss this.

A Little History

CONVERGESOUTH 2015

Our 2015 conference took place at Wake Forest University on October 16, 2015. Our theme was ‘Game Changers’ — what online skills do you need to change the game of your business? From SEO tutorials, content marketing development, DIY podcasts, to Squarespace and Tumblr websites, our attendees got the knowledge they needed to ramp up their business right away.
