The Marketo Summit is a fantastic opportunity to meet many like-minded marketing professionals and learn new things. If you come out of the event with three actionable items that you can implement within the next three months, you are a winner.
DID YOU KNOW? You can attend a maximum of eleven sessions—less than 10% of sessions offered. However, unless you can clone yourself, you must plan in advance for success.
There are so many great sessions at the Marketo Summit 2016, it can be very overwhelming. Honestly, it’s like going to a great restaurant, you really can’t pick a bad session. Don’t worry, Marketo is recording them all so you can catch up on the ones you missed.
The top takeaway I would like to have from this year’s Summit is to find a tool that does statistical analysis and works with Marketo. Josh Hill, Marketing Technologist and Marketo Champion
For my planning, I take a three step approach. Maybe yours is different but planning in advance is key.
The big thing I’d like to get out of this year’s Marketo Summit is……who is using revenue cycle model and how I can learn from them. Sharon Schwendner
It would be helpful if the tracks were clearly identified for each stakeholder. i.e; strategy/plan (exec level) vs ops/hands on. Jenny Coupe, Vice President of Customer Acquisition at SOASTA

Overall, who is speaking at the Marketo Summit?
From the entertainment industry, Will Smith are Rachel Platten are leading the Marketo Summit keynotes this year. So get jiggy.
On the business front, the usual suspects of Marketo speakers will take the stage. Phil Fernandez (CEO Marketo) and Sanjay Dholokia (CMO Marketo) will cover the latest Marketo vision.
Alison Levine (Entrepreneur, world-renowned adventurer), Gary Briggs (Facebook Marketing) and Jamie Gutfreund (Wunderman) round out the other keynotes. Personally, I love Everest stories to live vicariously through people that do amazing things from an adventure perspective.
Keep an eye out for sessions by some of the top names in the marketing industry.
Marketo is making the 2016 keynotes available on live stream again for this year’s summit. So, in case you can’t make it to Vegas, you can stream it live.
Note: Will Smith’s keynote will not be made available via live stream.
