It’s that time again folks, we’re heading out on the road to The Peach State to get up close and personal with the sales and marketing teams of the world at Rainmaker 2016. We’re excited for this event because the people over at Salesloft are promising cutting edge content, process building, and of course, tons of fun in HOTlanta!
We’re one of the four Gold Sponsors and we’re ready to bring EverString to Atlanta. We would love to have a conversation about predictive marketing with you, so if you’re attending Rainmaker stop by Booth 6 to meet with us.
There’s a lot of marketing shows this spring in many different cities. Deciding which ones to attend is a job in itself (trust me I know) so in order to hopefully make you and your teams’ lives a little easier (and maybe more fun?) I’ve compiled all the things you must do during the conference and in the great city of Atlanta itself.
At the Conference
1. Rainmaker Welcome Reception
– Monday 3/7 @ 5:30PM | Terraces & East Paces
2. Account-Based Everything Keynote with Craig Rosenburg from TOPO

3. How to Specialize Your Sales Team So You Can Actually Scale–A session with our very own Director of Sales Development, Matt Amundson and Ali Gooch, from Salesforce.com

Side note: Who’s Gary Vaynerchuk? You may know him from VaynerMedia, or at least their work on the social media strategies of companies like GE and PepsiCo. Vaynerchuck has penned 3 best-selling books, and he’s releasing his 4th book while we’re at Rainmaker based on his popular podcast, The #ASkGaryVee Show.

Sounds great right? But what is there to do after all the great sessions and thought leadership? Below is my fail-proof guide to Atlanta—where to hang out, places to see, and where to get the best burger in town.
The Rooftop Bar
Missed Sunday Funday? We have you covered. Directly across from the Westin Buckhead is the trendy W Buckhead. Located inside that hotel is Whiskey Blue, one of the premier rooftop bars in Atlanta. We happen to be throwing a pretty awesome party there Monday night at 7:30pm after the Rainmaker Welcome Reception–register here!
The Best Burger
Nearly five thousand people voted for their favorite burger in Atlanta and the winner was Bocado. Boasting two patties, American cheese, and house-made pickles, this burger handles simplicity like a boss.
The Celebrity Chef
If you know who Art Smith is, then you already know his Atlanta restaurant, Southern Art Bourbon Bar is worth experiencing. Taking southern cuisine and adding a flair of sophistication, dishes like deviled eggs are transformed into Pimento and Prosciutto Deviled Eggs with Sweet Beet Macerated. Give me some of those–stat!
The Vino Enthusiast
Do you love wine? Have no fear because Buckhead has one of the best wine bars in Atlanta. Vine and Tap has an impressive selection of wines which the owners have carefully curated from small wineries all over the world. So after a long day at the booth, head over to Vine and Tap to relax on the patio, enjoy some appetizers and a fantastic glass of wine.
So if you’re heading to Atlanta next week make sure to try out these places! We’ll be at Booth 6 the whole week – make sure to let us know how your experience is!
