HubSpot User Group Events: What to Expect

Renee Witko

protocol 80, Inc. took the hour and a half trek to Buffalo, NY to attend their first HubSpot User Group (HUG) event this week. And needless to say, it won’t be our last! (p80 is all about hugs.)

A combination of like-minded individuals and an open bar is always a recipe for success in our book.

If you haven’t attended a HUG event or have never even heard of one, here’s a breakdown of what they are.

HubSpot User Groups

What Is a HubSpot User Group Event?


FullSizeRender.jpgHUGs are comprised of a community of HubSpot customers, partners, inbound marketers, and developers who get together to help improve their inbound marketing tactics.

If you join, you can expect to learn inbound marketing tips, tools, and insider tricks. Whether you’re a beginner marketer or  expert, there’s something for everyone.

At the Buffalo HUG event we broke into smaller groups and discussed                                                                                                                      

  • Previous campaigns and content as well as how well it performed
  • Ad platforms we use to promote, distribute, and generate leads
  • Training and certifications we've completed
  • Tools we use throughout the day as inbound marketers

Do You Need a HUG?

The short answer is yes! They’re open to anyone and everyone  who is interested in learning inbound marketing  tips and best practices. And we can’t forget about HubSpot software!


Why You Should Attend a HUG

Joining HUG comes with a number of benefits, including

  1. Networking
  2. The freedom to share ideas with fellow HubSpot users in your community
  3. The opportunity to learn HubSpot and inbound marketing best practices

You may be saying to yourself that this seems like a great event, but you don’t have the time to attend. Don’t worry, HUGs are typically quarterly events, and we highly recommend checking one out!
