Who should attend IMPACT Live?
IMPACT Live is for marketers and business leaders who want to learn something new and apply it quickly to see unprecedented results. This crowd is diverse: B2B, B2C, agencies, from newly minted marketers to c-suite levels and entrepreneurs. The one thing everyone shares is the obsessive desire to succeed through inbound. If that describes you, then you should be at IMPACT Live.
Who from my company should come with me?
CEO, heads of marketing and sales, your marketing team, anyone instrumental in the growth of your company. Plus, we have special packages with value adds when you bring a team of 8+.
How is this different than other marketing and business conferences?
Unlike most other marketing and business events, IMPACT Live has a unique, single-track and fully immersive format. There’s absolutely no wasted time and you’ll get to see every speaker.
IMPACT Live 2019 is about your company and provides you an actionable roadmap, outlining exactly what you need to do over the next 12 months to have the most success with inbound. Not only will you walk away with great new connections and an inspired outlook, but you’ll have a concrete 12-month roadmap to success.
How long is the event? How many hours per day are we in session?
Plan to be in Hartford from Monday, August 5, at 5:30 PM through Wednesday, August 7, at 6 PM.
We kick off at 5:30 PM Monday with an Opening Night Networking Party. The conference sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday begin at 8:00 AM and run until 6:00 PM.
Are there breaks?
Of course! This is a high-energy event with a lot packed into each day, so you’ll need to recharge. Along with a continental breakfast and lunch provided each day, we’ll have morning beverage breaks and afternoon breaks stocked with coffee, tea, water, sodas, and cookies.
How much does it cost?
All-Access tickets are $450 if you book during Early Bird pricing, which ends on March 31. As the name implies, these give you access to all sessions on both days in addition to breakfast and lunch, the Opening Night Networking Party on Monday, and the Cocktail Hour and Evening Party on Tuesday.
VIP tickets are $700 during Early Bird pricing, which ends on March 31. VIP ticket holders receive all the benefits of All-Access plus premium seating, speaker meet and greets, signed books, a VIP dinner on Tuesday, and open bar during the Opening Night Networking Party on Monday, and the Cocktail Hour and Evening Party on Tuesday.
IMPACT Live for Teams packages vary, depending on the number of people you’d like to bring.
Is discount pricing available?
Early Bird pricing is happening right now through March 31. Additional discounts may be found through our social media channels or through our trusted sponsors.
Will food and accommodations be provided?
Both All-Access and VIP tickets include a continental breakfast, lunch, and breaks on Tuesday and Wednesday. VIP ticket-holders are also invited to a VIP dinner on Tuesday evening.
Your ticket does not include hotel accommodations, but we have set up a room block at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, which offers discounted rates (standard rooms start at $165/night) for anyone headed to IMPACT Live.
Will there be parties and evening events?
We wouldn’t have it any other way. Monday night (August 5) is the Opening Welcome Party from 5:30 – 7:30. On Tuesday, there’s a cocktail hour after we wrap for the day at 6 pm. Then we’ll regroup after dinner at 8:30 for the Evening Party Sponsored by Accelo. Like the conference itself, all events are casual (but if you want to keep to dress codes that are Fancy Ranch, Brooklyn Chic, or Fabulous Formal, that’s ok with us.)
Are there assigned seats?
All seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. VIP ticket-holders will have access to specially designated premium seating.
What should I wear?
What would you wear to hang out with your smart friends and talk marketing? That’s what you should pack. For some that’s a three-piece suit, for most others it’s jeans and a T-shirt. Wear what inspires you (and what can safely be worn out in public).
Since we’re in the Connecticut Conference Center, expect to do a decent amount of walking. You might also want to dress in layers, as you’ll be transitioning from the outside summer heat to indoor air-conditioning.
Can I record the event with my phone or any other recording device?
We encourage you to focus on the speaker instead of your phone during the event. That’s why we’re recording every session and taking notes for you. We’ll release the notes at the end of each day and will send you access to the video hub as soon as it’s ready after the conference wraps.
That said, IMPACT Live is pretty darn cool, and you probably won’t be able to stop yourself from recording some gems, taking photos, and generally showing your friends what they missed out on (unless, of course, you bring your friends with you). We don’t mind you doing any of that, as long as you share it and tag us.
