Lessons Learned: Hear What Attendees Said About #B2BMX

Published: April 4, 2017

The B2B Marketing Exchange concluded more than a month ago, but it feels like only yesterday I was learning about the latest B2B marketing, sales and account-based marketing (ABM) trends in Scottsdale. Amid three days of thought-provoking conversations with more than 800 marketing and sales executives in attendance, a plethora of insights, tips and best practices emerged.

I’m biased since my company produces every aspect of this show, but I’m not the only one who found value; we’ve come across a variety of post-event blogs—published on sites from LinkedIn to The Huffington Post—that highlight the value attendees gained from the event.

Below is a sampling of the trending articles shared by attendees and sponsors from this year’s B2B Marketing Exchange:
