SparkTogether 2023
When And Where
October 8
Seattle, WA

The original story-focused marketing event. Tell-all sagas. Real numbers. No recordings. Finally, in person.

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

Most events like these are 'meh' and usually result in a bunch of marketing fluff being thrown around. But I was very, very wrong. I spent the whole day FURIOUSLY writing down notes for my team, saving links, and chatting with fellow marketing pros during SparkTogether. I got ZERO multitasking done, and it was 150% worth it. Best conference I've ever attended.

SparkToro hosted THE MOST AMAZING virtual summit, SparkTogether. To say this was worth the time would be a massive understatement. The platform (virtual) and concept (unrecorded) produced some of the most vulnerable and authentic story-centered marketing events I've ever attended. The SparkToro team has really created GOLD here.

What was promised was honest stories, real data, and #SparkTogether delivered. One of the best marketing conferences I've attended in a while. Felt like a private storytelling session.

Still on cloud 9 after #SparkTogether. I'm exhausted, happy and still feel the vibes. I don't like virtual events. This was the first one where I stayed the majority of the time.

I'm feeling very energized after SparkTogether, easily one of the best conferences in a long while. Kudos to the team for curating an amazing lineup of engaging storytellers and a format that enabled transparent sharing.

Best use of my time today in an incredibly busy period. GOLD MINE of insights. So excited.

Last Year's Speakers

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!


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

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

And we're definitely not making any sessions longer than 30 minutes — because no matter how great a speaker is, after 30 minutes on a stage, we all have flagging attention spans. This is one full day of single-track sessions. 10 presenters. Well-moderated Q&A. And our always-awesome (and also well-moderated) live chat.
