Ready for 2019? Planning, setting goals, and mapping out the months ahead is always exciting this time of year. If you’re looking for innovative ways to grow your business, attending conferences can be a great way to network, learn more about your field, and even find new clients and customers.
Below, I’ve listed five conferences I believe all entrepreneurs and sales professionals should consider attending in the first quarter of 2019:
1. CES (January 8-11, 2019)
CES is a massive technology conference that brings manufacturers, business leaders, and innovative thinkers together (at 11 different official venues) to discuss what might be possible. The event has served as a platform for some of the most influential consumer technologies the world has ever know, including “old-fashioned” VCRs, Microsoft’s XBox video game console, and countless other electronics.
Most importantly, the event is managed by the Consumer Technology Association, or CTA, an American lobby representing global interests worth nearly $250 billion. This ensures that the best of the best are there, so why wouldn’t you attend?

2. 10X Growth Conference (February 1-3, 2019)
The 10X Growth Conference bills itself as the largest business conference in the world for good reason. Announced speakers include Daymond John of Shark Tank fame, the first billionaire businesswoman (Sara Blakely), social media guru Tai Lopez, TV personality Steve Harvey, and more qualified business coaches and advisors than I could hope to list here.
The event is taking place at Marlins Park, a baseball stadium that was recently constructed in Miami, Florida. Tickets are sure to move quickly, so I recommend procuring yours before they sell out.

3. Funnel Hacking Live (February 19-23, 2019)
Funnel Hacking Live is an entire conference dedicated to improving both the number of visitors to and the revenues generated by your sales funnels, a vital component of any modern business. This year, the event is being held in Nashville, Tennessee, and hotel packages are available.
Confirmed speakers include musician Lindsey Stirling, business all-star Myron Golden, and entrepreneur Russell Brunson. The conference also distributes awards to the owners of the most successful sales funnels of the previous year, providing plenty of opportunities to rub shoulders with the best in the business. The event has sold out four years in a row, so don’t wait to procure your tickets.

4. Traffic and Conversion Summit (February 25-27, 2019)
The Traffic and Conversion Summit (or T&C for short) is an annual event dedicated to digital marketing that has been held in San Diego, California, for the last decade. If you know anything about digital marketing, you know that it’s constantly changing. This is the place to be if you want to learn which strategies are effective right now and will be in the future.
T&C also has an impressive list of speakers lined up this year, including video advertising expert Daniel Harmon and entrepreneur Jeff Walker. Reserve your tickets today to discover why this event is often called the best marketing conference in North America.

5. Phenomenal Life Jamaica (February 25 – March 3, 2019)
Unlike the business conferences above, Phenomenal Life Jamaica is dedicated to helping you learn how to master five things needed to lead a phenomenal life: mindset, relationships, finances, health, and life. The event is also taking place in Jamaica, making it a great thing to turn into a get-away from the daily grind.
Eric Thomas is one of the speakers so you should be in for a treat. Eric rose in popularity after becoming known on YouTube for motivating business owners, entrepreneurs, and people hungry to get more out of life. Watching Eric Thomas speak is a privilege and an experience you’ll never forget.
