HubSpot INBOUND Virtual Conference 2020
“Our content types have been reimagined for the digital landscape, our speaker lineup is INCREDIBLE, the event is more global than it’s ever been, and we’ve built in plenty of surprise and delight moments for attendees. Our goal through this creative process has been to drive the same energy, excitement, and connections that would take place in-person and ensure that they will still be felt deeply online. Our digital platform has been built from scratch for our attendees, and we can’t wait for you to experience it.”
– Heather White, INBOUND
This year, many conferences moved to a fully digital event because of the COVID-19 health crisis. HubSpot INBOUND Conference wasn’t an exception. The meeting took place in Boston, September 22nd – 23rd, in a 100% online format.

HubSpot Inbound Virtual Conference Enhancements
Sales Hub Enterprise
Sales Hub has custom objects, specialized approvals, sophisticated reporting, and enhanced sales acceleration software and configure-price-rate features.
Custom objects are a significant addition to the Sales Hub. This feature allows you to have more versatility and control to match your CRM through creating and determining properties that don’t fall under the typical categories like contacts, companies, or deals.
You can also activate custom object data workflows and set registration triggers unique to your custom objects’ properties to target whoever and whenever you want. There is also a new Sales Hub Implementation Certification at the HubSpot Academy so that you can be accredited with new Sales Hub software and features.
Coming October 21st, 2020 – only pay for the contacts you want to sell. With the latest scalable contact pricing in the Marketing Hub, you just have to pay for the contacts you want to sell. There are days of concern about marketing to contacts who have signed out of marketing emails, bounce contacts, or quarantined email addresses.
You can adjust your contact list every month so that you can change how many contacts you market monthly, enabling you to adapt to the ever-changing client list of your company. You will then be able to enjoy free storage of up to one million non-marketing contacts.
Upgrades to Marketing Hub
Marketing Hub includes advanced customization software, a new report builder, and custom objects. Businesses need the opportunity to provide deeper customization through their marketing platforms. Thus, companies can create meaningful relationships with consumers in the digital world.
With new custom object features and ad updates, automation, behavioral events, and email tools in the Marketing Hub, companies can leverage rich data in their CRM to offer deeply personalized experiences through multiple touchpoints. And with HubSpot’s new custom report creator (beta) and expanded reporting restrictions, companies will gain in-depth insights into how customers communicate with their marketing materials.
Service Hub enhancements include logged-in guest identification, support desk automation, and team management capabilities, in addition to a multi-language knowledge base. HubSpot also added logged-in visitor detection to the Service Hub so that businesses can respond to messages more quickly and personally in the inbox conversations.
New help desk automation features have been introduced to allow companies to set up in-app chatbots to answer common questions. In addition to in-app chatbots, HubSpot offers assistance to businesses with an international user base by incorporating multi-language knowledge base capabilities.
Improvements to the HubSpot Ecosystem
HubSpot ecosystem includes a redesigned Solutions Directory and new remote work integrations in the App Marketplace.
HubSpot makes it easier for companies to develop a digital-based technology stack with updates to remote work apps like Slack and Zoom. New applications such as Microsoft Teams have been introduced to the marketplace and new app integrations such as Canva, to help you customize the content without leaving HubSpot.
HubSpot has now revamped and fully redesigned its Solutions Directory to help companies find the right service provider to succeed in the digital world. This allows every organization to adapt to the “new standard.”
