At The Email Design Conference: London, speakers from all around the world presented on a wide variety of topics, including accessibility in email, producing emails at scale, and writing subject lines. Speakers and attendees alike shared tips and inspiration all aimed at a common goal: to make email better. While there were countless takeaways, here’s a roundup of some of our favorites.
The Email Design Conference brought together over 500 passionate email designers, marketers, and strategists in one space—all eager to share their knowledge and soak in all of the information possible. Seemingly countless tips and advice were shared throughout the conference—and on Twitter. While there were thousands of amazing tweets, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite takeaways below.

When it came to launching ticket sales for The Email Design Conference, we opted to combine advanced email hacks with some fun by hiding five “golden tickets” within the email. Each ticket was hidden using a unique email hack and the first subscriber to find a specific ticket and tweet about it (using the #TEDC15 hashtag and including a screenshot) won a free ticket to the conference of their choice: Boston or London. Check out how we did it!

After many brainstorming sessions, we decided to use the common approach of dynamic content, but with a twist. We used a unique implementation to create a live Twitter feed in an email. Yes, a Twitter feed in an email.
We’re coming to Boston and London this year—and we want to hear your ideas! We want to hear about your frustrations and flops, your progress and process. The Email Design Conference celebrates the day-to-day triumphs (and challenges) of email.

Your stories are what makes the conference experience so valuable for everyone—so let us hear them! The call for speakers will close on Friday, May 15th.
