Like most people in marketing and sales, we spend a lot of time on the phone with clients and even more keeping up with changes in the SMB market. But most valuable is to get out to mingle, hear new ideas and be inspired by chance meetings at industry events.
With that in mind, we’re hitting the road this fall to attend some of our favorite conferences, including four where our CEO Stu Richards will be presenting:
B2SMB Institute Global Conference, Chicago, October 1–3
The B2SMB Institute Global Conference will gather business-to-small-business experts to discuss the latest innovations and best practices for big companies looking to engage, win and retain small business customers at scale. Participants include media companies, agencies, brands, SaaS platforms and digital solution providers, among others.
