INBOUND is huge. And you can’t possibly get to every session, attend every party, or talk to every sponsoring company you’d like. Instead of cramming as much as humanly possible in three days, take a step back and look at your current day-to-day. What are the biggest challenges you’re facing? Who are some of the vendors on your research list? Who are the top personas you’re trying to engage in your current programs?
Once you have your list, head over to the agenda and start matching up your current challenges with session topics and overviews. By prioritizing the topics that offer the most actionable takeaways, you allow yourself to return to work more inspired than ever.
PRO TIP: INBOUND sessions typically fill up and close well before the start of the event. Make sure you reserve your spot for the must-see sessions when you register.
Is there a piece of software you’ve had your eyes on for awhile? The perfect piece to add to your technology stack that will be the be-all, end-all to efficiency issues? Well unfortunately, I’m not quite sure that exists...yet anyway. However, there are some strong players in the expo hall at Inbound this year that could get you pretty darn close to a utopian tech stack. With sponsors like AWS, LinkedIn, Ceros--and of course a cool event marketing software company called Splash--you’re bound to see the best demos of the strongest software and services on the market. Make sure you’re not just wandering and taking a pointless swag lap; have a top-five list of booths you want to stop by, and come with a list of questions for the booth staff so you’re empowered to make a better decision down the road.
After all, in business, nothing is more powerful than human connection.
