Our B2SMBI 2019 Conference Lineup Is Here. Mark Your Calendars, Folks!

 Today we take the wraps off the B2SMB Institute’s 2019 conference calendar – three major events featuring a mix of content and formats providing powerful learning and networking experiences for B2SMB executives and practitioners throughout the coming year.

As you look to improve your efforts to win, keep and grow SMB customers – to do your job better in 2019 – I hope you save these important dates:

  • March 19-20, 2019, Dallas, TX – our first-ever Playbooks19 workshop event
  • June 13-14, 2019, Napa Valley, CA – our exclusive B2SMBI Leaders’ Forum
  • Oct. 2-3, 2019, Chicago, IL – our largest event, the B2SMBI Global Conference

Peter and I have spent a lot of time since our 2018 Global Conference last month building on what we’ve delivered and learned in Year 1.

For us, Year 2 is all about leveraging the momentum we’ve created thus far, and growing our community and our value delivered throughout 2019, using our 3 major events as anchors to build out our B2SMB peer-to-peer network, our best-in-class resource sharing, and our breakthrough SMB research.

So we’re thrilled to deliver these three high-impact events, each of which will provide opportunities for making meaningful connections, learning best practices and discovering the latest technologies for successfully competing in the $500-billion SMB marketplace.


Introducing Playbooks19

Playbooks19 is the B2SMB Institute’s newest event, featuring peer-to-peer workshops on how to successfully win, keep and grow small-business customers. The event takes place March 19-20, at AT&T Stadium, in Dallas, home of America’s Team, the Cowboys.

Our program will feature leaders in B2SMB marketing, sales, product development, customer service, delivery and more, offering B2SMB practitioners “how to” instruction on doing their jobs better. The content and format are inspired bythe tremendous response to Playbooks breakout sessions at our 2018 Global Conference. Best of all, our venue is built for elite-performance training – and its professional grade fun!


B2SMB Institute Leaders’ Forum 2019

Napa Valley’s newest “foodie wonderland” (NY Times), the Culinary Institute of America at Copia, provides the perfect setting for our2019 Leaders’ Forum. This event features an exclusive assembly of 100-plus senior executives, representing the C-Suite of many of B2SMBI’s largest members, who are driving the $500 billion B2SMB marketplace.

The program will address the critical challenges and opportunities of the highly fragmented Small Business customer and prospect base – millions of “snowflake” SMBs who often defy description. Leaders will address fellow leaders on innovation, on trends, and on success with SMBs, creating a dynamic 2-day dialogue on what’s working, and what’s not.

If you’re looking for assurance that our Leaders’ Forum is worth your investment, don’t simply take our word for it. Listen to 2018 attendee Josh Samac, VP of Operations for OnSched, who said, “The B2SMBi Leaders’ Forum has proven to be our highest ROI event all year.”


B2SMB Institute Global Conference 2019

The B2SMB Institute’s Global Conference in October is our largest gathering of the year, bringing together hundreds of B2SMB professionals for two days of market-leading insights coupled with extensive networking opportunities. Attendees include B2SMB leaders who are tackling the challenges of winning, keeping and growing SMB customers – and succeeding. The program’s rich content includes thought-leader keynotes, focus-panels and proprietary SMB research presentations, all of which inform B2SMB strategies and tactics.


In feedback about the 2018 Global Conference, Dip Ghuman, Senior Manager, Strategic & Product Partnerships for Indeed, said, “Thank you for bringing such a targeted event like this together. I think I can speak for everyone from the Indeed contingent that they found a great deal of value in attending and hearing from their peers in the space.”


So please – hop over to Google Calendars or Outlook or whatever you use to manage your busy schedule and lock up these dates.  Don’t miss a single opportunity to connect with and learn from the best and brightest of the B2SMB community!
