After looking forward to it for so long, it’s hard to believe that we’re finally counting down the days — and hours— until Share15. New and enhanced additions like our hands-on learning labs, specialized conference tracks and more top brands in attendance than ever before are sure to make Share15 the biggest and best year yet. We’re honored to host speakers, industry leaders, and brands from such diverse industries as retail, hospitality, software, and many more. With an unbelievable lineup of presenters and sessions, we decided it was time to create a central hub for all of the valuable content they’ve produced.
Below, you can find the ultimate list of pre-show content. This contains my own personal thoughts (after having the privilege of reviewing the content) as to what marketers will learn for Share15. Whether you want to learn more about upcoming sessions, discover new digital marketing best practices, or just need something to tide yourself over until the conference starts on September 21st, you’re sure to find plenty of useful information to fit the bill.
