INBOUND is an event that celebrates the human, helpful side of business. But it's more than just four days of learning and inspiration. It’s a place where attendees can step back from their day-to-day, and think about big ideas and what's next in the worlds of marketing, sales, and customer success. As a speaker, you have the potential to catalyze an entire year worth of great ideas and help our attendees grow better in business and as people.
INBOUND's purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections that our attendees need to grow their businesses. Attendees pack the room at breakout sessions because they know they'll be receiving high-quality education from industry experts like you.
With a capacity of hundreds of attendees in every breakout session, INBOUND is a great platform to share your message and grow your personal brand. Past speakers rave about our incredibly engaged audience and their genuine passion for what they do and what they're learning at INBOUND.
Help attendees dive into the latest advances in marketing and learn about everything from content creation strategy to the most recent developments in SEO. While we will offer content for every experience level, we are especially looking for advanced, expert-level educational marketing content this year.
Show attendees how to take an inbound approach (read: more human, helpful) to sales, including sharing strategies and tactics they can use to close more deals and delight their prospects. We are especially interested in content geared towards sales executives and sales operations/enablement.
Educate attendees on how to deliver a remarkable customer experience that places empathy at the core of every relationship.
Teach attendees how to get the most out of the software from your perspective as a top HubSpot user with sessions from product deep dives to transformation stories.
Encourage attendees to broaden their worldview with content that will help them develop skills to be better teammates, leaders, and personally grow. Prompt them to consider new perspectives on creativity, diversity and inclusion, company culture, leadership, and much more.
New this year, this track is primarily geared towards attendees in startups, including founders, that have raised a Seed round or Series A funding. For this track, we are looking for expert speakers with tactical advice to help startups grow better. An ideal speaker for this track would be a former founder or executive who has been there and done that and can give high-quality content to our attendees. We want to help startup attendees learn everything from how to hire their first sales person to what founders need to know to set up a quick and easy email marketing campaign to drive customers.
We're piloting a new program to help up-and-coming speakers attend and speak at INBOUND as part of our ongoing commitment to having the world’s top thinkers, influencers, and cutting edge business leaders share their insights at the event. This is a chance for new voices to be heard on the INBOUND stage, and benefit from interacting with our attendee community before, during and after the event. Some highlights of the program include being an official INBOUND ambassador, receiving a complimentary hotel room for the full week of INBOUND, and having your session filmed.
