SiriusDecisions Summit 2017 was a jam packed three days. The Venetian was bustling with conference goers hurrying from session to session, eager to learn and share. Plenty of themes emerged over the few days, including that account based marketing tactics are in high demand, and that the importance of sales and marketing alignment has never been greater.
Throughout the conference there was a feeling of congeniality spread amongst the attendees. “We’re all in this together,” seemed to be an underlying credo for everyone. People compared notes at sessions, ate meals together, and shared their experiences freely. This feeling of sharing and openness crossed over to social media, as well. The hashtag #SDSummit was extremely active all week from early morning sessions to late night parties. We’ve compiled the 9 best tweets of the SiriusDecisions Summit below.

There was tons of giveaways and swag available from all of the vendors the exhibited in the marketplace this year. But SiriusDecisions really hit the nail on the head with their giveaway: 5 hour energy and a goodie bag full of necessary items like vitamin C. It was a long 3 days and those all came in handy.
