Final thoughts

Remote working and virtual meetings might be lasting legacies of COVID-19 but 2023 is set to have more in-person sales events than we’ve seen for some time.

These conferences, conventions and trade shows offer perfect environments for salespeople to hone skills, learn new tactics and meet industry peers.

Attending a sales event usually requires some planning, especially if you’re going as part of a team. You’ll sometimes need to arrange tickets, travel and accommodation months in advance to avoid disappointment

A US sales calendar will help you keep track of events happening across the country, so you can mark relevant dates and reschedule work tasks with plenty of notice.

In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of attending sales events and list the key occasions to include in your sales activity calendar for 2023. While the end of 2023 looks quiet right now, it’s likely we’ll see some new events added over the next few months so keep checking back.


Why attend sales events in 2023?

According to Pipedrive’s State of Sales Report 2020-2021, 53% of respondents say they develop their sales skills on the job. However, consumer preferences and marketing technologies are constantly evolving and your sales strategies need to change with them. That’s where sales conferences come in.

It’s easy to dismiss sales events as an avoidable business expense, especially when budgets are tight, but they can benefit your business in various ways.

Choose the right ones and you and your team can:

  • Develop sales abilities in an informal, relaxed environment. Sales courses and books are useful training tools but they don’t suit all learning styles. The buzz and excitement of an event, where there’s likely to be plenty of different activities on offer, will keep some reps more engaged.

  • Compare strategies and performance with industry peers. While salespeople often spend time with prospects, customers and colleagues, they rarely interact with others from their field. At sales events, they can gain fresh perspectives on daily challenges and compare tactics with other reps and managers.

  • Make useful contacts. Sales events don’t just draw salespeople. Attendees can also meet marketers, business owners, executives and other revenue professionals who could be useful to future deals and hiring efforts.

  • Build rapport with teammates. Events are an opportunity for team members to step away from their daily duties to spend time with their colleagues, learning how others work and reminding themselves they’re part of a bigger machine. Even away from the event, reps can bond during downtime in a new city before returning to work refreshed.

While sales events bring all these benefits and more, attending every event on our list is unlikely to be a productive use of time and budget. Use the links and descriptions to find the events most relevant to your organization and share your calendar with the team to gauge interest.

Note: While all our event information is correct at the time of publishing, sales calendar events may be modified or postponed. Always check the latest travel and conference information before making any arrangements.

Final thoughts

Attending sales events is a great way to pick up new skills, network with your industry’s best and break the year up to keep your team engaged.

If you’re new to sales events, start by picking one or two in a city nearby to test the waters. Based on the value you get from those, consider how far you’re ready and able to travel. Opening yourself up to events in other states will give you access to the most relevant and inspiring speakers.

The events calendar evolves throughout the year, with organizers adding, amending and occasionally canceling shows. Late changes have been more common in recent years so it’s well worth revisiting your schedule regularly to stay up to date.
