Seven Reasons to Attend TOPO Summit
1. The World’s Best Sales and Marketing Leaders
At the 2016 Summit, we heard one thing loud and clear – the quality of the sessions and content was incredibly valuable to attendees. Summit wasn’t like other sales and marketing events – a bunch of thought leaders pontificating about high level concepts and trends that can never be put into practice. In 2017, we’re doubling down on our commitment to high quality sessions and content. We’re recruiting speakers from over 40 of the world’s fastest growing companies. We’re holding every speaker to an even higher quality standard – more specific, more data, more use cases.
2. Seven High Impact Tracks
This year, we’re going to nearly double the number of sessions on offer. Summit will have 50+ sessions and workshops covering the most important topics in sales and marketing today. Sessions are organized into seven high impact tracks including:
- Sales Leadership and Strategy
- Marketing Leadership and Strategy
- Sales Development
- Account-Based Everything
- Sales Operations and Technology
- Marketing Operations and Technology
- Sales Effectiveness
3. The Rise of Account-Based
Account-based models are taking the world of B2B sales and marketing by storm. That’s why we’ve added a track dedicated to learning about the best account-based strategies and tactics. You’ll learn from marketing and sales leaders who have been practicing account-based for the last few years and achieving exceptional growth rates as a result. You’ll also hear from the TOPO Analyst team as they present our latest research on account-based, and discuss our canonical account-based framework.
4. Calling All Marketers
This year, we’re excited to welcome marketers to TOPO Summit! With the addition of tracks dedicated to Account-Based, Marketing Leadership, and Marketing Operations and Technology, 2017 Summit will feature over 20 marketing-specific sessions and workshops. You’ll have an opportunity to learn from the world’s best marketing executives and practitioners on the most important topics in B2B marketing. If you’re a marketer that’s been to a TOPO event before, you know that we don’t just pontificate about high level concepts and thought leadership – we like to roll up our sleeves and get into the specifics of how marketing can drive pipeline and revenue.
5. Sales and Marketing Leadership Tracks
We’re also excited to announce our new Leadership Tracks. Designed for sales and marketing executives, the sessions in our Sales Leadership Track and Marketing Leadership Track will provide deep insights and best practices on strategic topics such as go-to-market strategy and organizational design. These sessions will take place at The Battery, and will afford attendees a first class experience in San Francisco’s most prestigious private club. If you’re a Chief Revenue Officer, VP of Sales, CMO, or VP of Marketing, you won’t want to miss these sessions.
6. Exclusive Parties, Dinners, and Networking
We’re planning a full slate of social activities at the Summit, including what promises to be one of the best parties of the year – our Summit Bash. The Bash takes place on the Embarcadero in a beautiful indoor/outdoor space with views of the waterfront, cityscape, and Bay Bridge. We have an amazing DJ lineup and some of San Francisco’s best food and drinks. We’re also hosting invitation-only dinners and networking sessions. Summit dinners and networking events take place at the best restaurants and bars near Pier 27.
