Are you planning on attending a marketing conference this year? You are not alone. According to recent reports, 205 million people in the U.S. attend more than 1.8 million conventions, conferences, congresses, and other events annually.
Unfortunately, many business owners, marketers, designers, and developers seriously overspend on low impact marketing conferences. And with so many different marketing conferences to choose from, it's difficult to know which events are actually worth your time and investment.
The fact is, not all marketing conferences yield the same kind of results, and it's your job to separate this year's must-attend conferences from those bottom-of-the-barrel gatherings. As a recognized growth marketing team, we've attended plenty of high-value marketing conferences, heard from a ton of great marketing visionaries, and connected with peers from all over the world.
We're here to let you know that attending the right marketing conference can unlock significant value for your business!
