Everything You Need to Know for INBOUND

We’re only four weeks away from HubSpot’s INBOUND conference in Boston. The conference takes place September 15 – 18 and features an incredible line-up of speakers, including Malcolm Gladwell, Guy Kawasaki, Martha Stewart, David Meerman Scott, and more. As the days pass, more details are released and my excitement level increases.

I’ve created a collection of resources and announcements about the event and want to share them with all of my fellow attendees. Let me know if I’ve missed something!

The Session Agenda is Released

There are a variety session formats at INBOUND. They include,

  • Keynotes – Headlining events featuring speakers like Martha Stewart and Guy Kawasaki.
  • Bold Talks – Short, TED-talk style sessions. Here’s a preview.
  • INBOUND Stories – Case study sessions featuring INBOUND success stories.
  • INBOUND Experts – Educational sessions, where attendees learn INBOUND principles and skills.
  • INBOUND Insights – Small break-out discussions about INBOUND.
  • HubSpot Deep Dive – More tactical classes on using HubSpot’s INBOUND tool.
  • Ask Me Anything – Q&A in small groups.
  • FutureM – Discussions around the future of marketing.

The folks at INBOUND have created an incredibly simple and pleasing tool to sign up for and organize your attendance. If you’re anything like me, you’ll likely register for everything and then use the tool to go back through and prioritize — sadly removing sessions from your list because you don’t have the time to clone yourself and attend everything.

Craft Brewery Recommendations for INBOUND 2014

As a resident of Colorado, I am a big beer fan. We are a craft beer hot-spot and checking out new breweries is one of my favorite things to do. Which is why I was thrilled when Revenue River published a list of the best breweries to check out in Boston while at INBOUND. This list is exactly what I need to get a taste of Boston while I’m at the conference.
