HubSpot INBOUND 2013 - Don't Miss These 10 Speakers
Starting on Monday with a day of HubSpot/Inbound Certifications, this year's inbound marketing conference, INBOUND 2013, will bring a ton of great speakers, performers, and innovators to the Hynes Convention Center.
Who are some of the presenters that will be dropping some serious knowledge?
Well, obviously HubSpot's Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan will entertain, inform, and share the latest trends in inbound marketing-and web innovation in general. But here are ten more folks to catch next week.
1. The Keynotes - Godin, Huffington, Silver
There are some really great keynote speakers at this year's INBOUND.
With web media giant Arianna Huffington, marketing guru Seth Godin, and ESPN's newest hire, election prognosticator Nate Silver on the docket, the morning sessions are sure to be filled with fascinating, inspiring, and mind-blowing talks.
Although Huffington and Silver can't be missed, Godin is sure to bring down the house. The man who came up with premise for "inbound marketing" has already shaken up marketing, publishing, and education. Godin's speaking engagements often sell out, so the opportunity to hear what he is up to next is a real treat.
2. INBOUND - Whitney Johnson
The author of Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream, Johnson is a "Must-Follow" on Twitter and often blogs for the Harvard Business Review. She also helped found startup investment firm Rose Parks Investment with Clayton Christensen.
Whether on the speaking circuit or consulting for burgeoning entrepreneurs, Johnson is always in demand. Check her out on Tuesday at her "Show Up to Your Dreams" talk.
3. INBOUND - David Meerman Scott
David Meerman Scott has written a ton of books on marketing including the Grateful Dead-applied to marketing book he co-wrote with HubSpot's Brian Halligan, Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead.

4. INBOUND - Brian Wong
Get to Tuesday afternoon's 'Bold Talk' early and prepare yourself for a fast-paced knowledge dropping session with Kiip's young co-founder, Brian Wong.
A constant fixture on any list of promising, young CEO's, including Forbes "30 Under 30", Wong is not shy about sharing his opinions on gaming, mobile engagement, and pretty much anything. Be prepared for a wild talk where almost any topic under the sun is likely to be discussed.
5. INBOUND ROCKS - OneRepublic
The Colorado Springs-based group will be headlining HubSpot's Wednesday evening concert.
Known for their hit, "Apologize", they will surely be bringing a little rock n' roll to top off the second day of the inbound marketing conference.
6. INBOUND - Rand Fishkin
Fishkin, the founder of Moz and Inbound.org, is an inbound marketing master.
Another presenter with a huge Twitter presence and appearances on many young innovators lists. His session, "The Secrets of Better Marketing" should be a great way to start Thursday morning.
