APQC's 2017 Knowledge Management Conference

APQC’s 2017 Knowledge Management Conference is officially over and it was informative and fun to say the least. Celebrating 22 years of bringing together the best and brightest minds in KM, we saw so many of our members and clients from all over the world; and we also met a lot of new friends (who might be future APQC members). As the conference theme suggested, we explored some of the biggest trends that will transform how employees interact and share knowledge over the next decade.

Each day was jam-packed with great content and lots of networking opportunities. If you couldn’t make it, or if you just want to relive the moment, check out our conference materials below.


Now through June 30, participants of the conference can still purchase the Post Conference Multimedia Access. With so many sessions to choose from, it was impossible to attend them all. Now you can view all of the sessions we had permission to record post conference at your leisure.

If you are interested in purchasing, do so through the 2017 conference registration. You will need the email address you used to register for the conference and your registrant ID. Attendees will have access to the Post Conference Multimedia through April 30, 2018.

A special thanks to our exclusive 2017 Knowledge Management Conference sponsor, Iknow, LLC! Their contribution to the conference was invaluable. You can view the overview of their breakout session here. Look to hear more from them in the near future as they have more insights to share with the APQC audience.

We saw a lot of buzz on Twitter about the conference. Search #apqckm for some meaningful nuggets from the conference. Here are just a few we captured.
