One and only Saas conference founders should visit

You NAILED IT!

I have to share, that your conference is one of the best I attended. It's not about the quantity of people you meet, but the quality. You get an incredible crowd there and the conference was packed with incredible stories and data.

WOW !!!

Things I Loved:

  • - Dinner and your charismatic way to connect and introduce people is incredible
  • - Conference - and agenda - speakers and their stories
  • - Questions you ask people responses

Things it I would recommend that could make it even better (ideas for next time)

  • - Get people to do share images of the conference - so we can all promote it via Social Media (Make hashtags, sharing on FB, IG, etc)
  • - Play music between speakers - short clips - (I guess you have to additional person)
  • - Ask people for "Testimonial" at the end of the conference (for your next conference marketing)
  • - Sell next year conference tickets during this conference (I would buy it if it was available)

I appreciate the invite and looking forward to the next one.
