Conference Headquarters

With vibrant culture, unforgettable meals and a booming tech scene, there’s no question as to why we are back. We’ve found there’s no better location than a city where innovation meets personality.


Enjoy the conveniences of staying within the conference hotel. We work hard to negotiate the best hotel rate. Reserving a room within the official Hero Conf room block helps to support not only Hero Conf Austin, but future events. Plus, the perks aren’t bad either (think, sleeping an elevator ride away from your first keynote)!

Why send a team to heroconf?

  Here at Hero Conf, we always encourage team time, but last year’s attendees can speak for themselves. Over 50% of attendees came as at least a pair, if not a team. We had 28% of attendees bring a group of three or more, and over 13% joined the conference with four or more colleagues. Why stop there when you can bring your whole team, which is exactly what two companies did!   Want current numbers? So far, 50%+ of the 2016 Hero Conf registered attendees think it’s a good idea to attend with at least one other teammate! Need more reasons to bring your team to Hero Conf? Let us help.       » For Company Training & Professional Development   Continuous improvement is always the goal, right? Well there is no better place to learn than from the experts themselves. Use the conference time as a way to train rookies or expand your veterans’ knowledge. With a 5:1 attendee to speaker ratio, you and your team are guaranteed to get more questions answered. Encourage employees and colleagues to join you in gaining invaluable insights with actionable takeaways.     » To Cover More Ground   With over 40 breakout sessions offered, one person simply cannot absorb it all (as much as you may want to!). Bringing a team will allow you to divide and conquer Hero Conf London. Prearrange your sessions to ensure no one overlaps then come back to compare and share notes. It will be like you heard it all!     » Because Content is Rich & Conversation is Richer   Of course we pride ourselves in the depth of our content, but applying what you learn is the ultimate goal! After you reconvene from the divide and conquer (see To Cover More Ground), work with your team during a coffee break or the bar takeover to discuss onsite how to implement what you’re learning and engage in the PPC world around you, together!     »To Bond with your Team   Spend some time with your team doing something other than work while you enjoy yourselves at our 5 separate drink receptions & after hour activities! We come to Hero Conf to learn more about the industry we love, but the evenings are reserved for catching your breath. Let loose with your colleagues and get to know one another away from office.     Last year we were thrilled by your enthusiasm to bring your team to Hero Conf, so this year, we’d like to reward you for doing so! Receive 10% off each registration when you bring a team of 3 or more! Group pricing applies to the conference pass only.     Email us for your group rate discount code!
