4 B2B Marketing Conferences To Attend in 2018 – Part 2


Read the first part here: 4 B2B Marketing Conferences To Attend in 2018 – Part 1

 

So, it’s time I wrote down Part II of the 4 B2B Marketing Conferences To Attend in 2018. I hope I managed to sufficiently convince readers that the marketing conferences listed in my first guide (CES, Sales Innovation Expo, Saastr and Dreamforce) are well worth their time. For those who did attend these B2B marketing conferences (Dreamforce to still come up), I hope you had as much luck as I did in terms of not only sales but also valuable networking.

That’s what it boils down to, doesn’t it? Networking. Yes, every company invests in events and conferences with the hopes of scaling their sales. But sales should not be the only bottom line of your event strategy. Events and marketing conferences are a great way of meeting people, learning what’s happening in the market and generating fresh ideas for your business.

Another important point to mention here is that even if your first conference did not yield the results you were wanting, you should not give up. Maybe you should tweak your event strategy or maybe your offer wasn’t relevant to the attendees. Also consider that it can take anywhere between 2 to 6 months for the prospect to turn into a paying customer – remember, the sales cycle varies based on your product.

Traveling the world and meeting new people – that’s my passion. Events such as the Growth Marketing Summit offer me the opportunity to combine business with pleasure in the best possible way.

With a CTA like “100% knowledge – 0% blah blah,” the Growth Marketing Summit team means business. With experts from giants like Facebook, Booking.com, Unbounce etc. speaking at the conference, you know you’re in the right place to network and learn.

If this is something of interest to you, then you should get a rush on booking your pass – at the time of writing this, they only had 111 tickets left at €980. As far as B2B marketing conferences go, I believe this is one that you should not pass on.

Final Thoughts

If you think about it, you cannot put a price on training and educating your team. Any business is only as good as you and your team. Keeping them on their toes is now more important than ever, especially in this tech and data-driven B2B world.

Overall, traveling the world to meet new people, expanding your circle and learning throughout the journey is something that every CEO and his/her team should invest in. B2B marketing conferences are something that delivers both – awareness of the real world and upcoming trends combined with networking from people all over the world.
