0 Days Until SparkTogether
October 8th, 2024
Seattle, WA
A day-long summit — in person for the very first time.

Stories you won't hear anywhere else – because we won't record them, and we ask participants to keep speaker-requested details private (i.e. off social media).

You'll emerge a savvier, more well-rounded practitioner.

What Folks Said About Past Summits

SparkToro is hands down the best conference I've been to in years. I've attended since the first one, and will keep attending as long as Rand and Amanda keep finding smart people willing to be radically open with the attendees.

SparkTogether is one of those rare events that's single track, well curated, and not dominated by vendor pitches. If you can only pick one marketing event for the year, this is the one.

If you can go to one marketing event per year, choose SparkTogether. The stories are juicy, the attendees are fun, and the speakers will BLOW YOUR MIND.

SparkTogether was such a refreshing divergence from all other conferences I had attended before. The speakers were REAL - not perfectly polished and robotic - but instead were laughing, crying, and telling the sometimes hard truths about business. The takeaways were much more than actionable step-by-step notes and the presentations will stick with me for a while.

What impressed me so much about SparkTogether was the actionable examples given about how to improve many aspects of marketing. I've got a to-do list of activities, not just vague inspiration.

I rarely sit through a full day conference, but I was riveted by the program. The sessions were varied and personal in a way rarely experienced. I have already bought every book and followed every resource mentioned by the speakers to keep on learning.

Confidential Case Studies

You won't hear these stories anywhere else.

We ask our speakers to present their stories unfiltered, including real numbers, financial figures, and ugly truths. That's because SparkTogether isn't recorded, and we ask all of our attendees to agree not to publicly share any pieces a speaker marks as confidential.

You won't find these presentations on Twitter, LinkedIn, blog posts, or TikToks. That's what makes SparkTogether so special – it's a once a year chance to hear these powerful stories, warts and all.

Conference Schedule

This year's schedule is coming soon!

In-Person

On October 8, 2024, spend a full day in Seattle, WA with an inspiring collection of marketers, creators, and operators from eight-figure agencies, fast-growing startups, and small, indie businesses, too. With a single-track agenda and a carefully-curated speaker roster, you can expect a focused day chock full of insights. Hey, it's the “Chill Work” of conferences.

If you've been to any of our past virtual events, like the SparkTogether virtual summits or SparkToro Office Hours, you know that the friendliness and enthusiasm among our community of marketers is unmatched. Networking will be a breeze.

Stories & numbers.
Trials and triumphs.
Successes and failures.

You'll hear from agency owners who fell into pits of unprofitability and nearly shuttered their practice. You'll learn about in-house marketers who took dying companies to industry-leading growth rates with a single campaign.

You'll experience the emotional rollercoasters of campaigns that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, and the occasional few who snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Why SparkTogether?

We've attended a lot of conferences, a mess of livestreams, and a ton of webinars. Some of them are great… Many are not.

With SparkTogether, we're using our experience to deliver an exceptional day of outstanding programming, but we don't think that's enough.

To be worthy of your time, SparkTogether needs to provide value you can't get anywhere else. That's what we've built – an event whose format is wholly unique, focused on memorable narratives, told with passion by the people who lived them, with real metrics and outcomes revealed (even when those numbers tell an unflattering story). We think stories are the most memorable way to learn.

Quality, Not Quantity

One day of exceptional value. One track—so you don't have to miss sessions.

We hand-picked eight of the finest speakers in the marketing world—folks willing to share valuable, revealing data they wouldn't anywhere else, taking questions on-stage and off. The value isn't in the number of sessions, but the sky-high signal:noise ratio.
