Trying times and all, the show must go on — and for sales enablement professionals, that means trade shows, conferences, and virtual events.
Many aspects of life remain on hold, but professional events are no longer one of them.
As more organisations pivot online, you can now partake in many top industry events from the comfort of your living room. Dynamic digital environments mirror the in-person experience, from interactive breakout sessions to virtual networking opportunities. The remote reality even provides some unique advantages — such as the ability to attend global events online for which a plane ticket would have previously been required.
With a multitude of worldwide virtual event options, how do you know which ones to choose? Get started with this list of five fall events designed to help you elevate your enablement practice.
HIGHSPOT SPARK 2020 | 7–8 October
Why attend? Calling all Highspot customers — Highspot Spark 2020 is a must-attend event with more than 70 speakers, 25 sessions, 4 keynotes, and much more. Our inaugural global user conference is bringing together leading minds to partake in thought leadership panels, product demos, and intimate roundtable discussions designed to help you uplevel your enablement practice. Over the course of two days, you’ll hone your product skills and learn from a diverse lineup of speakers, including Salesforce Digital EVP & GM Adam Blitzer and best-selling author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance Angela Duckworth. Don’t miss the opportunity to join our community of Highspot customers and product experts who are shaping the future of enablement.
ATD SELL | 12–15 October
Why attend? The annual SELL conference is designed to focus on two critical levers within sales enablement — learning and leadership. The event opens with a keynote presentation about confronting the changing sales enablement realities, delivered by LinkedIn’s former Global Head of Sales Enablement Ben Putterman. Engaging sessions follow over the next four days, including group work where you will work on an actionable plan to take back to your organisation.
SALES 3.0 CONFERENCE | 14–15 October
Why attend? For everyone from sales managers to chief sales officers, the Sales 3.0 Conference provides key insight and strategies to drive improved sales performance revenue growth. Any leadership role responsible for sales or revenue will find value in the event’s virtual sponsor booths, AI-powered networking, and live streaming sessions with a mix of senior sales executives and thought leaders, authors, and experts. What’s more, it’s an interactive event — the floor will open for you and other participants to ask questions of the speakers.
SES ANNUAL CONFERENCE | 26–29 October
Why attend? Hear from sales enablement practitioners from around the globe at the Sales Enablement Society’s multi-day event. With more than 8,000 members around the world, the Sales Enablement Society provides a prime networking opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, share best practices, and learn from experts committed to advancing the industry.
SALES ENABLEMENT SOIREE 2020 | 4 November
Why attend? The Sales Enablement Soirée is the largest virtual event exclusively for sales enablement. Attendees span industries, geographies, company sizes, and disciplines, but the common denominator for all is a passion for pushing the boundaries of sales enablement. The event draws notable speakers, including last year’s keynotes from Paul DePodesta, the mind behind the game-changing Moneyball strategy, and Gartner’s analyst Brent Adamson, co-author of the Challenger Sale. Register for the event and join the conversation at Sales Enablement PRO.
There is incredible power in community. During a time when we need human interaction more than ever, virtual events are ways to learn, engage, and grow together. If you find yourself attending one of the above, connect with us on LinkedIn or Twitter for live updates, recaps, and more.
