Performance Marketing Summit Austin 2017 Recap

The Performance Marketing Summit took place on Tuesday, March 14 at the WP Engine offices in Austin, TX.

Performance Marketing Summit

The Performance Marketing Summit was limited to about 50 people and one sponsor (thanks WP Engine!), and we fit in an agenda with lots of networking and sessions from eight speakers into the one day event.

There was a networking breakfast during check-in for attendees to get energized and talk shop. Then I kicked things off as the emcee, followed by a series of 18 minute solo sessions.
