Escape the crowds by joining us at the San Francisco Mint, venue of the eighth annual OpsStars Conference, an exceptional learning and networking event uniquely tailored to operations professionals and revenue team members.

With LeanData and Salesloft as this year’s co-sponsors, the conference hosts 2,500 attendees with 25+ speakers sharing their knowledge and experience across 20+ sessions and workshops.

So if cool people and career-changing insights are not convincing enough, here are the top five reasons you should attend OpsStars 2023:

If the best things in life are free, then OpsStars is definitely on that list. All of the sessions, keynotes, workshops, networking opportunities, and end-of-day happy hour are 100% free to attend — no asterisks, qualifiers, or fine print. If you’ve already spent your entire T&E budget this year, OpsStars will put a smile on your CFO’s face. 

2. Content You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

OpsStars is the singular destination to hear from frontline operations practitioners about real-life challenges and practical advice to help avoid future obstacles.

This year’s sessions will dive into topics like generative AI, RevOps career paths, breaking down revenue silos, cultivating a high-performing go-to-market culture, B2B buying secrets, ecosystem-led growth, and much more. 

Industry leaders from companies including G2, NVIDIA, Snowflake, Drift, NielsenIQ, Highspot and of course Salesloft and LeanData, will discuss the latest trends as well as respond to attendee questions.

While you could attend motivating sessions all day at OpsStars, there are plenty of opportunities to simply chat with peers and network. Some of the best connections are made at OpsStars. 

Take for example, LeanData’s VP of Commercial Sales, Rob Simmons. Years ago, as an Account Executive for Outreach, Rob was brought into San Francisco to attend Dreamforce.

Hearing good things about OpsStars, Rob strolled over to the Mint and noticed one of his prospects sitting at a table by himself, catching up on work on his phone. Rob walked over, sat down, and introduced himself. To this day, they’re close friends and stay in contact.

Networking events are held throughout the day at OpsStars. The OpsStars 2023 happy hour will feature operations leaders providing advice on growing in the RevOps space and getting hired.

4. Get Inspired by the OpsStars Awards

The annual OpsStars Awards spotlight the best and brightest of the operations community. Whether they are pioneering new strategies in account-based programs, embracing digital transformation, or crafting winning sales cadences, the conference helps spread their innovative stories with the community. 

This year’s award finalists join the ranks of past OpsStars winners from industry leaders like Atlassian, Snowflake, Shopify, Zoom, and more. Winners receive a trophy and opportunities to share their successes and insights with the OpsStars Community during future events.

Come congratulate this year’s award winners!

5. Great Place to Chillax & Recharge

OpsStars is the perfect place to relax, grab some snacks and drinks, and while you recharge yourself, you can recharge your mobile phone and other personal electronics. 

Need caffeine? Visit the Salesloft coffee cart and Speakeasy in the Mint Vault starting at 10 am. Hungry? Come for a lunchtime meetup with Don Otvos, LeanData RevOps extraordinaire and host of the OpsStars podcast. In the sponsor rooms, Xactly will be hosting a “money grab,” CaptivateIQ is offering a massage station, and there will be specialty cocktails served throughout the day.

Caught the OpsStars fever yet? 

OpsStars had its beginnings as a response to a real need: a platform for the Ops community to come together, exchange valuable ideas, hash out solutions, and find a breather in the whirlwind that is Dreamforce. 

Fast forward to today, and OpsStars has grown into a thriving community where dedicated operations practitioners of all levels unite to share knowledge and collaboration.
