It’s the second most wonderful time of year, industry conference season! Although we do have a special place in our hearts for Christmas, the conference season has us doing a little happy dance as we board our flights to get out and meet everyone face-to-face.
As one of our first ventures out of the nest, Austin did not disappoint. In a true Texas fashion, this year’s IIeX NA was BIG with over 1,000 attendees and more than 100 speakers. We know the Insights Marketing Day Stage was a fan favorite. How can we be so sure, you ask? Well, when your stage becomes standing room only, we’d say you’re doing pretty good.
With every Insights Marketing Day, we aim to deliver as much value as possible with a curated and explosive agenda of keynote speakers with proven authority in the digital marketing industry to deliver significant insight, tips and tricks.
Don’t fret — if you missed the event and are currently experiencing FOMO, here’s a little recap for you.
