Since its debut in 2015, Traction Conference has successfully garnered international attention. It was named the “best in class for single-day event” by Huffington Post and achieved an overwhelming six-star review. The first conference in Vancouver was so successful that four months later, it was brought to San Francisco.
Traction Conference is known for its high caliber speakers. At more typical conferences, you would expect perhaps four or five keynote speakers. However, in the case of Traction, you’ll be learning from more than 30 C-suite executives and growth experts from some of the fastest growing companies in the past decade such as Airbnb. Dropbox, Marketo, Slack, Hubspot, Zenefits, Pinterest, Lyft, Credit Karma and more.
Without further ado, here are the top five reasons you should attend this year’s Traction Conference.
