Hero Conference - Los Angeles, CA

Hero Conf Los Angeles marks our sixth annual US event, where PPC fanatics gather to share a passion, collaborate on solutions and simply have fun while learning about the latest trends in paid search. Hero Conf is hosted by the experts behind PPC Hero and is an event tailor-made for digital advertising pros ready to discuss tactics and actionable ideas to implement within their accounts. We’re an event that understands the demand for training in an ever-evolving industry and knows the importance of connections that matter in a world where networking means more than a handshake.

What does The World’s Largest All-PPC Event look like?

It’s shaped mostly by about 750 of our awesome and nerdy friends. They range in title from Account Analyst to Founder and CEO, PPC Specialist to Director of Marketing and everywhere in between. They are innovators and leaders in their fields with a curiosity that drives them to continue learning. They come from giant brands and tiny digital marketing agencies. And they all share a common goal, getting the absolute most out of their PPC campaigns.

Our 40 brand-new sessions allow them to dive deep into the content that’s most important to them. Topics include traditional search, display, social, mobile, retargeting, conversion and programmatic. Four separate tracks mean they can select the content only the content that’s most relevant (but can get the slides from any session they miss post-event). That includes the Hero Conf Advanced Track, with sessions designed for the seasoned PPC expert. You may come out of these sessions with even more questions, but driving discussion around new ideas is central to improvement.
 
Add to that the opportunity to network with nearly 60 world-class experts, who aren’t just speakers, but practitioners in their own right and we think we’ve got the formula for a one-of-a-kind event experience that you just can’t miss.
