Taylor and I were flown out to San Francisco for the 2016 Google Partner Summit earlier last month from November 9th thru 11th. An invitation to the summit was awarded to badged agencies who are certified in the Google Partners program and attained the highest level of performance required for eligibility.
Overall, 900 individuals attended the summit from all corners of the world. The group of advertisers in attendance accounted for nearly 10% of all Google AdWords spend.
This year’s Summit was held at the Westin St. Francis in San Franciso, CA; and was an unforgettable experience. We feel so grateful to have been able to come together and learn how we will be leading our current and future clients to the “cutting edge of opportunity” ranging from the latest and greatest technological innovations, new data-driven insights on consumer trends and behavior, and last but certainly not least – best practices for measurement, a fundamental component to creating a successful online advertising campaign.
“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.” – Karl Pearson
