Overview

Supernode is a two-ish day gathering in Philadelphia presented by Crossbeam. If you like our blog, you’ll love Supernode. Join 200+ partnership professionals from leading SaaS companies to swap best practices, get inspired by leading partner programs, and (most importantly) make new friends.

200+ Partnership Professionals

Actionable, Battle-Tested Workshops

Deep-dive workshops expanding on our most popular content. We’ll fill up your notebook and have you amped to return to work.

13+ Talks From Industry Leaders

Impressive case studies. Trends that will keep you ahead. Tales from the trenches. Hear from those making waves in the partnerships space. Nominate a speaker here.

1 Dinner With New Friends

After day one, we’ll split up into smaller groups — and each group will be assigned a private table at one of Philadelphia’s many drool-worthy restaurants.

A Masterpiece of a Closing Party

Meet up with your new friends as you tour original works by Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso at the Barnes Foundation.

Local Treats for Early Birds

Arrive early and we’ll hook you up with a tour of the city. Themes include food, history, architecture, and more.
