The first ever Conversion Conference Boston wrapped up last week to glowing reviews from the hundreds of digital marketers present. The strong speaker lineup, timely and relevant topics, and engaged attendees all contributed to an unforgettable inaugural Boston show.
Keynote presentations by SiteTuners CEO Tim Ash and Fresh Tilled Soil CEO Richard Banfield set the pitch for high-energy learning and networking all throughout the 3-day conference. Both speakers tackled issues that have increased in importance for digital marketing success: building a strong conversion rate optimization program and adapting to the disruption of mobile.
Conference speakers comprised by noted conversion experts impressed everyone with the quality of their insights and their ability to impart practical tips that attendees could actually implement as soon as they got back to work. Some attendees were also pleasantly surprised to discover that Conversion Conference actually has a strong focus on user experience, persuasion, and psychology, the kind of stuff that’s critical for strategizing for long term conversions.
The Seaport World Trade Center provided the perfect background for two days of conversion optimization learning and networking. While you had to be there to experience the thrill and action, you can gauge how much attendees loved being at the conference from the tweet stream:
We had such great time at #ConvCon we’ve learned a lot! Now It’s time to put into practice all this new stuff!
