The Ultimate Guide to the Forrester B2B Summit

We’re heading to Austin next week for Forrester’s B2B Summit. Will we see you there? 

For anyone headed to the Bat City 🦇 (hands up if you knew people called Austin that, because we sure didn’t), we’ve put together a quick guide of everything we’re up to and all the events happening during the summit. 

Learn from our customers

Kyle McCormick, Senior Manager, MarTech & Campaign Operations at Palo Alto Networks, (and 3x Marketo Champion!) is leading a case study session during the event. Kyle and his team support over 400 global marketers by managing the global MarTech stack, as well as building emails and landing pages. Hear all about how they’ve massively scaled their email efforts — while remaining agile and brand-consistent — and how Knak helped them do that.
