Every year, over 20,000 marketers, salespeople and client success professionals from all across the world converge on Boston, USA for a week of inspiration, learning and networking at Inbound.
It’s the third year ClientsFirst has attended this event and in a few short weeks, I will be joining my colleague Jon Pittham to experience what has been described by some as ‘the mother of all marketing conferences.’
I have to admit, it’s my first time attending Inbound. I’ve voluntarily taken a back seat for the last two-years having experienced conferences in the past that have left me, well, a little underwhelmed. I’ve struggled to justify travelling the 3000+ air miles for ‘just another conference.’
What is very clear is that this isn’t ‘just another conference.’
You only need to skim the list of spotlight speakers to understand that this conference can pack a big punch, especially with big names such as Janelle Monáe, HubSpot’s Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
From the keynote speakers to the 200+ break-out sessions to choose from, it’s fair to say that Inbound has certainly made a mark for itself since it started in 2012. It is now reportedly one of the fastest-growing business events in the world.
As the UK’s best reviewed HubSpot Gold Partner Agency in the UK, we like to think we know a little something about inbound marketing and attending this event is all about building on that knowledge further.
Our 2019/2020 agency focus is firmly around helping businesses achieve ‘Growth’ and we are always looking for ways to help firms accelerate that growth at a quicker rate.
At Inbound, I’ll be taking a special interest in platform automation, further strategies for increasing organic leads and the importance of how data is used within client service teams.
Inbound kicks off on Tuesday, September 3rd and runs until Friday, September 6th.
Jon and I will be sharing our experiences of Inbound throughout the week.
