B2B Marketing Forum (Marketing Profs)
October 18-21, Boston, MA
Last year, Ann Handley got on stage to play the accordion. If that’s not enough to convince you to attend, I don’t know what else to say. In their 10th year, the B2B Marketing Forum brings together true leaders and innovators to share secrets to their marketing successes. Keynote speakers include experts like Andy Crestodina, Lauren Goldstein, Lee Odden, and Uberflip’s very own Yoav Schwartz. Check out our picks for must-attend sessions.

Viewtopia Video Marketing Summit (Vidyard)
November 9-10, San Francisco, CA
If Vidyard’s Viewtopia Video Marketing Summit is anything like last year’s, it’s definitely an event you don’t want to miss if your company is well into a video strategy or just looking at starting one up. According to past attendees, it’s a “must-do event for companies that want to stay at the forefront of digital marketing”. Be sure to let Vidyard know what your biggest video marketing challenges are to get $50 off your ticket price.
SiriusDecisions Tech Exchange
November 15-17, Austin, TX
SiriusDecisions’ Tech Exchange conference is the only B2B conference that focuses on how to leverage technology to help increase performance and enhance alignment between all departments. Focused on sales, marketing, and product professionals, this two-day summit looks at what technologies currently exist and how to build a tech stack that really works for you. Here are the sessions we think you should check out.
UFX Encore (mid-fall)
Feeling nostalgic for UFX? We are too, so we decided to bring it back! Check back mid-fall for a UFX re-run. Tune in to see presentations from the content marketing masters who took the stage this August in Toronto and a chance to win the infamous Uberflip socks we know you can’t stop thinking about.
