Top 16 Sales Conferences to attend in 2017It’s 2017, and that means it’s time to set the goal of being the #1 Sales Representative of the Year. Erase the revenue board, evaluate what you accomplished last year, and strategize your plan of attack for 2017.

As a sales professional, you need to set yourself up with the tools of success. I’m not just talking about using the best software tools, but actual sales training that you can use, implement, and execute on.

Professional sales conferences are a great way to sharpen your tool kit. You have the opportunity to learn from top industry leaders, educate yourself on emerging trends, expand your network, and even prospect. And the included happy hours don’t hurt either.

Even though conferences can be fun, and a nice break from the office, I recommend focusing on conferences that really align with your objectives. Understand what you want to get out of the conference. Are you looking to hear from some of the biggest and brightest business stars out there? Do you want to focus more on tips and tricks? Do you want to hear from a panel of leaders in your space?

If you’re looking for a balance of all of the above and more, here are 16 sales conferences you should consider attending in 2017 (in no particular order).
