TMBA 137 (LBP120) – How To Profit From In-Person Events With Rob Walling

Dan and Ian are both in the States and working on their next big thing – the Dynamite Circle Conference in Bangkok in October.

Planning conferences is a lot of work that you never even thought of until the hotel was asking what kind of breakfast menus you would prefer during your third break on the second day. Who has a breakfast menu during their third break?!

They decided to call in a pro and chat it up with Rob Walling, the founder of MicroConf (The Conference For Self-Funded Startups.) With two successful events under his belt, he had a ton of great information on How To Profit From In Person Events, including:

  • How To Pitch Your Audience
  • Getting Speakers and Sponsors – Who Is In and Who Is Out?
  • Keynotes, Breakouts, Speaker Sessions, Workshops – What Is The Best Schedule of Events
  • and How To Get Your Event On Hacker News


Just The Tips
