Introducing Connections 2013

If you enjoyed Pardot’s annual users conference, Elevate, then you’re not going to want to miss Connections 2013, the world’s largest gathering of interactive marketers hosted by ExactTarget and Pardot. Connections will take place in Indianapolis on September 16-19, 2013, and will feature four days of informative sessions, inspiring speakers, networking, fun-filled happy hours, and amazing musical performances by the Avett Brothers and Imagine Dragons (how can you say no to that?).

B2B Connections Sessions

You talked, and we listened. We know how much you enjoyed the B2B focus of our Elevate conference, so we’re happy to announce that Pardot will be hosting the B2B track of Connections, which will feature a full day of sessions run by Pardot users. You can expect to learn about important B2B topics like segmentation, ROI reporting, email marketing, content creation, and more. Keep an eye out for more information about session schedules in late June.

All Connections attendees will also get to listen to keynote speeches from Condoleezza Rice, Jim Collins, and Walter Isaacson.

Office Hours and Training

If you’re interested in doing some one-on-one consulting with a Pardot pro, like we offered at Elevate, then we have some great options for you. Pardot will be offering office hours to interested clients during Connections — just be sure to bring your own laptop! We’ll also be offering “Academy Day” training classes on Monday, September 16 and Tuesday, September 17 for an additional charge. Join Pardot team members for deep dive, hands-on training full of instructor-led discussions, where attendees can learn how to build campaigns in real time.

Post-Conference Parties

If you’re looking for an opportunity to learn more about B2B marketing by day, then party with some of the brightest minds in the industry by night — you’ve come to the right place. Pardot will be hosting a spot on the HubCrawl, the famous Connections pub crawl in downtown Indianapolis. Feel free to visit all of the bars, but know that you’ll always be able to find your Pardot peers at our own special spot. And don’t forget about the Connections Music Festival, where Connections attendees will take over Lucas Oil Stadium for a private concert featuring the Avett Brothers, Imagine Dragons, and DJ Casey Connor.

Can’t wait to register? We don’t blame you! Sign up now to take advantage of the early bird discount (good until July 31st) and group rate, and don’t forget to talk to your client advocate about additional discounts for previous Elevate and B2B Inspiration Tour attendees.

We hope to see you there!
