1.    Conference: The 2018 Growth Acceleration Summit (Boston, MA)

We may be a little biased, but of course, the event we’re most excited for is the 2018 Growth Acceleration Summit! This three-day conference takes place on June 18th-20th in Boston, and will offer valuable strategies and insights designed to help marketing and sales professionals. The 2018 Summit features an all-star lineup of speakers who will all explore this year’s theme: marketing and sales productivity.

Here are the three main reasons we’re excited for this year’s event – and why you should be too:

  • Learn from the best:

The Growth Acceleration Summit brings together the biggest and brightest minds in sales and marketing. You’ll hear from industry legends and experts, best-selling authors and professional coaches. Jay Baer, Neil Patel, Trish Bertuzzi, and Grant Cardone are just a few examples – and there are many more!

  • Network:

Not only will you leave the Growth Acceleration Summit with valuable insights, but you’ll likely leave with new connections. Over the course of the conference, you will attend round-table discussions, workshops, and evening parties. This will give you the opportunity to connect with your fellow marketing and sales professionals and build meaningful relationships.

  • Explore Boston:

It may be snowy and frigid as we write this now – but there’s few better cities to be in the summertime than Boston! Whether you visit Fenway Park, catch a boat on the Boston Harbor or check out our variety of bars and restaurants, you’ll be sure to have a memorable time in Boston.
