What to Expect

your people, all in one place

450+ GTM Leaders

A full campus of kindred spirits who are using their ecosystem to achieve the kind of jaw-dropping head-smacking results in sales, partnerships, and marketing that dreams are made of. Find your next mentor at the firepits, your next friend-for-life by the taco bar, and your next partner by the sunny outdoor cafe. See who’s going.

Choose your own adventure

3 Tracks. 30+ Speakers.

Tracks for Ecosystem-Led sales, leaders + executives, and for those still scaling their ecosystem. Oh, and there’s no “pay to play” here. Speakers are meticulously vetted by their ability to produce noteworthy results, not because of a sponsorship. Watch last year’s talks.

Like College, But Better

The World’s Best Ecosystem Education

Get your digital hands dirty with 12 tactical workshops on the tools and workflows that work from leaders who have been there before. That’s 55+ minutes of personalized instruction including plenty of time for questions and guidance.

Table for Four, please

Natural Networking

After the speaker sessions, you’ll have plenty of time to relax, unwind, or schedule meetings with your potential new partners. No need to rush — we’re on California time. Take advantage of the resort and explore the pool, three bars/restaurants, countless parties, meetups, and games. And on Tuesday, join us as we take over the Punch Bowl in downtown San Diego.
