Announcing Elevate 2012: Pardot’s User Conference

Elevate 2011Elevate 2011 hadn’t even ended yet – headbands and t-shirts were still up for grabs on the tables – and we were already getting asked about Elevate 2012. When is it going to be? Where is it going to be? Well, we rested for a few days and got right to work on planning an even bigger and better conference. Based on all of the great feedback from the previous event, we’re confident this next user conference will be everything you’ve been dreaming about.

So, on that note, we’re pleased to announce that Elevate, Pardot’s annual user conference, will return to the W Atlanta – Midtown from October 23 – 25, 2012.

What is Elevate?
Elevate is an annual conference put on by Pardot for our clients and partners. Everyone comes together for two days jam-packed with sessions, breakouts, networking, and after-hours events. By day, you’ll get your fill of Pardot tips and best practices while taking in some of the best food and accommodations in Atlanta. By night, you’ll get to enjoy drinks out on the town and meet with other clients and the Pardot staff.

What’s new this year?
By popular demand, we’ll be introducing an optional third day dedicated just to training. These new pre-conference workshops will give you a hands-on Pardot experience in a close setting of your peers. Members of the Pardot team will walk you through new features and use cases – actionable items that you can apply the second you get home. And all of this is on top of the existing Office Hours, one-on-one with meetings with a Pardot services team member.

Call for Speakers and Sponsors
Part of what makes Elevate so successful is the extra help we receive from speakers and sponsors. If you have some Pardot or marketing knowledge that you’re just dying to share, please let us know so we can get you on the podium. We’re also looking for sponsors that are interested in helping us put on this great event. Sponsors get a booth where you’ll get to chat with our intelligent and tech-savvy client base, plus a speaking opportunity (select packages). Interested speakers and sponsors should contact Laura Horton (laura.horton at for more information.
