Make email better

Litmus Live (formerly known as The Email Design Conference) brings the email community together to celebrate their craft and give email professionals a platform to learn, share, and grow.

Free from product pitches and meaningless hype, we’re all about content: teaching designers, marketers, and strategists how to produce emails that look great, perform well, and engage audiences. With sessions covering innovative email development techniques, responsive design, content creation, testing strategy, production processes, and more, you’ll take away tips and techniques that have immediate impact.
