10 Must-Attend B2B Marketing Conferences for 2019

It’s encouraging to see a resurgence in the quantity and quality of B2B marketing conferences and trade shows these days. For a while there, I was worried, as event after event went dark. Part of the upturn is due to the growth of the proprietary client conference.

It’s encouraging to see a resurgence in the quantity and quality of B2B marketing conferences and trade shows these days. For a while there, I was worried, as event after event went dark. Part of the upturn is due to the growth of the proprietary client conference, where B2B companies host clients, and often prospects, with an array of educational and schmooze opportunities.

Sirius Decisions, Terminus and Marketo are prime examples. But other events have emerged, too, to support marketers seeking information on martech, data, personalization, ecommerce, social media and other challenging topics.

Here’s a lineup of top-quality conferences scheduled in the remainder of 2019:

Mostly B2B, featuring a keynote by thought leader Matt Heinz, and sponsored by ON24.

Organized by Demandbase, with a free livestream of the keynotes for those who can’t attend in person.

Worth a jaunt across the pond.

Now folded into the Adobe Summit, this event has grown to 15,000 marketers. Wow.

Chaired by Scott Brinker, focused on technology tools for B2B and consumer marketers. Martech East runs in Boston, September 16-18.

Digital marketing and e-commerce for manufacturers and distributors. Where industrial marketers meet.

Covers the gamut, from product management to channel marketing, and everything in between. Plus, a touch of start-up and innovation content.

Featuring popular speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk and Geoff Ramsey, with an emphasis on brand and advertising topics.

This lively show continues to grow and thrive. Not 100% B2B, but just about.

My favorite. It claims to be “The best B2B marketing conference on the planet,” and as a frequent speaker and attendee, I can attest.
