Announcing Recur 2018

Patrick Campbell Oct 22 2018

The beauty of the recurring model is that for the first time in history we have a business model that bakes the relationship directly into how you make money. Every month (or year, etc.) your customer decides if you're worthy of continuing the relationship through the value you're providing.

You're in a symbiotic relationship of customer and business. 

We think this relationship is pretty cool, so we love to study every intricacy of how the subscription economy ticks, but we also love to join forces with like-minded individuals to learn as much as humanly possible from one another. This is why we're thrilled to announce the fourth annual Recur 2018 (formerly known as SaaSFest) right here in Boston December 5th through the 7th.




What is Recur?

Recur is our vision for creating the TED of the recurring revenue world, gathering powerful industry players to learn from one another in a non-promotional, no-fluff conference - centered entirely on empowering everyone to get the most out of the subscription economy.

We keep the conference limited in size to ensure you can make as many meaningful connections as possible and keep the sessions on a single track with highly vetted speakers to ensure you get the most out of your time. 

You can get more details below, but check out the main Recur 2018 website to register and see our ever-growing speakers list. We’ve already sold half of our tickets, so pick up your tickets while available.

Recur 2018 - All the fun details

    • Dec 5: Pricing Workshop at ProfitWell HQ (optional) 

At Price Intelligently, we’ve developed a bit of expertise in the field of Subscription Pricing (a lot if we’re not being humble :)). For companies looking for specific guidance to optimize their pricing, packaging, and positioning, we’re hosting a full day workshop to develop a tailored pricing framework and testing plan.

We know you can get general advice on our blog, so we’ll work through specific exercises about the pricing structure of your company and demands of your market. We’ll walk you through:

    • Creating quantified buyer personas

    • Identifying growth opportunities in your current pricing data

    • Methods to collect high quality pricing and relative preference data

    • Techniques to use data for pricing, positioning, marketing, funnel alignment, and more

We'll give you an inside look at what we do for companies that work with us and help you create a tailored framework that you can take back to your company.

    • Dec 6: The Main Event

Out of the 10k+ recurring revenue companies we’ve worked with, the most successful have mastered all three pillars of the subscription world: monetization, retention, and acquisition. We’ve organized our main event to give you maximum insight into each.

Each segment will feature a series of 30 to 45-minute talks. Like last year, we’re skipping panels in favor of speakers that will offer deep cuts in their area of expertise.

This year's main event will be headlined by some of the most impactful figures in the subscription economy like:

    • Rand Fishkin, Founder of Moz and Sparktoro

    • Dan Martell, Founder of

    • Meagan Eisenberg, CMO of MongoDB

    • Katie Burke, Chief People Officer at HubSpot

    • Brian Balfour, Founder and CEO of Reforge 

    • Fareed Mosavat, Growth at Slack

    • More announced soon!


    • Dec 7: Executive Trial & Error (application only)

Two years ago, we tried a bold experiment: an invite-only post-conference discussion for founders and executives of recurring revenue businesses. It went far better than we expected. One attendee said it was, “The most honest conversation I’ve had about my company all year.” This year, we’re excited to host it again.

Trial and Error is a time to reflect on learnings from the conference and candidly discuss the challenges we face. We’ll talk openly about our wins and failures and shared issues we work through as SaaS leaders. It’s a judgement-free zone where everything discussed in the room stays there -- there’s no social media allowed. 

You’ll leave the discussion feeling ready to tackle whatever challenges arrive next, backed up by a new network of high level execs and founders who you can call for advice. It’s a deeply moving and memorable experience. You can apply to attend here for more details.

Recur 2018: Join Us at the Center of the Subscription Universe

Recur is all about attendees coming together to share what they've learned while working on the front lines of the subscription economy and building a shared community in the process. It’s not your typical conference -- it’s a chance to hear actionable lessons from leaders you can immediately apply at work. You'll get to know the people who are making it happen at successful SaaS companies from around the world.
