Grab your coffee, block out the day... Grow with Inbound is back for 2020 and going international. But what can you expect on the day, and why should you join us? In this blog, Matthew Creswick from Huble Digital gives 5 reasons why #Grow20 is an event you can't afford to miss.
1. Find out what HubSpot are gearing up for in 2021
Aside from Inbound 2020 – HubSpot’s annual conference held in Boston, Massachusetts (which will be held online for the first time ever in September) – Grow with Inbound 2020 is the only place where you can hear from HubSpot’s big cheeses.
We’ll be interviewing Brian Halligan, HubSpot’s CEO, Christian Kinnear, HubSpot’s VP and Managing Director for EMEA, and Shahid Nizami, HubSpot’s Managing Director for APAC. Three marketing and sales experts covering three different regions.
In these interviews, you can expect to hear more about how HubSpot are dealing with the current pandemic, what’s new in the world of marketing and sales (as well as what’s on the cards for HubSpot), what’s changed and what the focus for next year will be.
If you’re a marketer, salesperson, customer service representative or business leader, you can’t afford to miss the insight that these three will offer. It could change the way you do things and set you up for success in 2020 and beyond.
2. Plan your marketing and comms better for 2021
The world is changing – that much is clear – but the question is: how do you prepare for and embrace that change?
As an international consultancy that works with businesses around the globe, we know that a one-size-fits-all approach never works. Everything must be tailored specifically to the needs and expectations of your business’s target audience. And with that in mind, we’ve brought together some of the foremost experts to help you develop a strategy for the future, one which attracts, engages, converts and delights prospects at every stage of the buyer’s journey. Here are a few things to look forward to:
How to adapt your marketing plan going into 2021
Matthew Creswick, Huble Digital’s Managing Director for Singapore) will interview Aaron Soh, HubSpot’s Head of Channel Sales for SEA, Greater China & India, on the topic of marketing strategy and how to adapt a plan for 2021. Expect this session to cover everything from the current state of the market to how to leverage new tools and trends to achieve success.
How Inbound PR can empower your COVID-19 communication strategy
Forget the ‘new normal’, it’s all about how you refine your PR strategy so that it aligns closely with your marketing and sales activity.
In this session, Jon Brown, Huble Digital’s Senior PR Account Manager, delves into the changes we’ve experienced as a business during COVID-19 – and how those changes have made Inbound PR more relevant and potent than ever. Tune in to find out how you can use the tenets of Inbound PR to build brand awareness, communicate with potential prospects, empower customers and remain successful moving into 2021.
The future of search marketing – what’s now, what’s next?
Search is changing. You no longer need to input precise search queries to find the information you are looking for: search engines understand your intent.
Nowadays, search engines utilise several variables to produce accurate search results: search history, location, device, time, proximity and so on. They can differentiate between requests for information and searches that indicate an intent to purchase, and they know to look at semantic searches to deliver results related to queries.
However, search engines have gone a step further. Facilitated by natural language processing (NLP) and voice assistants like Alexa and Siri, voice search is becoming increasingly popular.
And it’s incredibly accurate.
In this presentation, Dan Golden, Vice President of Huble Digital USA, delves into how search is changing (including voice search), what’s next and how you can turn this information into actionable strategies for your business.
3. Find out how ‘digitally mature’ your business is
If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that business resilience and the ability to respond to change is absolutely essential in the digital-first world.
Indeed, this year has been one of unprecedented change and has prompted businesses around the globe to reassess their “fitness” for the future, especially as remote working seems to be set to continue for some time to come.
But what does this mean for you? Here are a few sessions to look out for:

With the world going remote and face-to-face client meetings not an option for the time being, Daryn Smith and Andrei Sochala, Aircall’s Director of Sales, put their heads together to discuss how businesses can set up remote sales teams using the Aircall and HubSpot integration.
4. Learn why recruitment, culture and remote working are so important in 2021
One of the cornerstones in a successful business is the people that work for it. If you can create an enjoyable, inclusive and challenging (in the right way), work environment – you’ve already laid part of the foundation for business success.
However, while simple in theory – developing an amazing workplace takes time and effort.
