INBOUND 2021 is fast approaching, and the FINALLY gang and I are excited to attend again!
With our Powerhouse Passes, we’ve got virtual and on-demand access to all the talks, breakout sessions and online experiences. Personally, it is a must attend event for both inbound agencies and businesses alike.
But with so much on offer, I’m here to give the Engineering & Manufacturing world the lowdown on my top 5 sessions not to miss out on.
Below, I have carefully selected 5 sessions that cover a variety of different topics, such as brand storytelling, LinkedIn tips, email marketing and video content. Don’t forget, these are just a handful of sessions from a truly huge lineup at INBOUND 2021; be sure to check out the rest of the agenda.
I cannot recommend this event highly enough. Keynoters will inspire you with their ideas and visions for the future of marketing and business. Plus INBOUND is more than just great content, it’s also an absolute blast! (Watch out for some celebrity appearances too.)
You still have time to grab tickets if you haven’t done so already, we hope to see you there; be sure to say hello to the FINALLY team in the chat 👋
WHEN IS INBOUND 2021?
Tuesday, October 12th - Thursday, October 14th, 2021
IS INBOUND 2021 IN-PERSON OR A VIRTUAL EVENT?
The event is virtual just like last year, but from FINALLY’s experience it’s just as fun, rewarding and interactive as possible. So don’t let that put you off!
WHAT IS INBOUND?
HubSpot's yearly INBOUND event is one of the largest marketing events in the world, with influential speakers from a wide range of businesses and industries spanning across all areas of marketing, business, and sales. You’ll also get to learn about all the new and upcoming HubSpot features to help your business grow.
This year at INBOUND 2021, you can learn from thought leaders of your favourite global brands like Google, LinkedIn, HubSpot, Shopify and more, giving you and your business insight, inspiration and actionable ideas that you can implement for yourself.
Each year there are some celebrity big hitters you’d be silly to not tune into – and 2021 does not disappoint – with the superstars Spike Lee & Oprah Winfrey offering their thoughts and insights! (What a line-up right?)
