Forecast 2017: 5 Reasons Why You Can’t Miss This Sales Conference

We couldn’t wait to share the good news: Base’s annual sales conference, Forecast, is back! On September 18th, 2017, we are gathering hundreds of forward-thinking reps, decision-makers and executives to discuss all things sales.

Simply put, Forecast was created to give data-driven sales professionals a day where they can come together and actually talk about sales. From inspiring and actionable content to sales science certification, here are 5 reasons why you can’t miss Forecast 2017.

1. Learn from industry leaders on topics that are relevant to you

Whether you are just starting out in your sales career or are a seasoned vet, this year we are taking meticulous care to craft an agenda that’s both inspiring and informative for all roles.

At many conferences, the speakers present cookie-cutter topics that make you wonder if you learned anything new. As we’ve built out this year’s speaker roster, we’ve kept that question in mind. The speakers at Forecast 2017 will present net-new knowledge that’s both directly applicable to your challenges and will leave you walking away with actionable next steps. Varying in roles and industries, we’re super excited to unveil this year’s speaker lineup.

2. Get certified in sales science (and earn major bragging rights)

Included in this year’s general admission cost, Forecast attendees have the opportunity to gain exclusive access to sales science and prescriptive insights training. Participate in a Base bootcamp course designed to help sales leaders elevate their capabilities by getting acquainted with the science of sales. Participants will receive official certifications to enhance their careers and rankings amongst other sales professionals.

3. Stay ahead of the curve and explore the latest sales technology

Sales has always been a data-driven industry, so it’s no surprise that sales teams are some of the earliest adopters of today’s popular tools. At Forecast, not only will you have the opportunity to meet with top sales technology vendors, but they will also take the stage and discuss how successful teams have adopted these tools to accelerate their sales performance.

4. Bring your business cards – there will be plenty of networking opportunities

Meet with more than 600 data-driven decision-makers and executives across varying industries and roles. Whether you chat over coffee, walk around the Palace of Fine Arts during lunch, or grab a beverage at happy hour, we’ve carved out plenty of great networking opportunities. Expand your rolodex – you never know who you’ll meet at Forecast!

5. One-day conference at a beautiful venue (need we say more?)

We dislike stuffy hotel conferences just as much as you. This year’s Forecast location is the best yet: San Francisco’s iconic landmark, the Palace of the Fine Arts. Nested along the bay and away from the hustle and bustle, the Palace of Fine Arts sets us up for a refreshing day.

We have more exciting news headed your way, but these are just a few reasons why you’ll want to attend Forecast 2017. And right now we are running a special promotion – Super Early Bird tickets are on sale for only $99 (75% off general admission!). We only released 100 of these discounted tickets and they will go fast – grab yours and register today!
