15 Best Sales Conferences You Should Attend In 2018

 

Sales is the industry that probably benefits most from conferences. Not only are we able to find out new trends and broaden our knowledge, but we are also able to meet a lot of like-minded people and maybe a few future customers.

Owing to lead generation you can even find the contacts of the people attending the same conference as you, reach out to them beforehand and schedule a meeting.

That is why sales professionals should attend at least one conference per year. It’s up to you (and your budget) to decide which one.

In 2018, sales will have to pay attention to tech if they want to increase revenue and most conferences are focusing on that topic.

1. Digital Sales World

2. SaaStr
